image of Evaluating and Rewarding the Quality of Teachers: International Practices

Drawing on relevant international research, including information from experts’ presentations and papers given at the December 2008 Joint Conference between the OECD and the Government of Mexico, this book sets out good practice in the design and implementation of incentive systems for teachers. With this aim in mind, the book provides analysis and discussion of the design and implementation of incentive systems for teachers as well as guidance on what should be rewarded and how it should it be measured, who should be rewarded, how they should they be rewarded and how policies should be developed and implemented to ensure stakeholder engagement and commitment.

Incentive System Implementation

As the preceding chapters in this book have shown, the design and implementation of performance-pay systems for educators are complex endeavours that affect key stakeholders in variable and nuanced ways. No matter how carefully designed and thoughtfully implemented, a new compensation system for teachers and school leaders can be controversial, and in any case, is bound to produce questions and concerns. As such, no discussion of the attributes of an effective teacher incentive system would be complete without considering ways to engage educators themselves in its design and implementation or without suggesting strategies for ongoing communication about the system.
