Editorial Reviews

Bob Chase

"Odden and Kelley demonstrate in this edition of Paying Teachers for What They Know and Do why they are the primary source for reliable information dealing with teacher compensation."

Yvonne Chan

"Every community developing a strategy to improve schools will want to use this book as a guide. It tells you everything you want to know about new teacher compensation strategies that affect all aspects of teaching and learning."

Sandra Feldman

"The second edition of Paying Teachers for What They Know and Do advances the ongoing discussion of how to create compensation systems that reward teachers for developing skills and knowledge needed to deliver standards-based instruction. As Odden and Kelley write, "we are still at the beginning of the learning curve" in understanding which systems are viable and effective, and therefore should monitor the development of new teacher compensation systems carefully."

December 2001 issue - The Midwest Book Review

"A remarkable, eye-opening reference, and very highly recommended reading for educators, school board members, and administrators."

The School Administrator

"[The authors] have done an outstanding job of crafting a process for the administrator or school board member to begin discussions on altering staff compensation."

Through this work, she seeks to build formative assessment tools and intervention strategies to improve leadership practice in schools.
