Overview

Rewards and Reform offers a comprehensive view of student, teacher, managerial, and organizational incentives and shows how they are linked to school reform goals. Noted experts in education policy, practice, and research, as well as respected thinkers and practitioners from the public and private sectors, consider a variety of incentive approaches.Drawing from such diverse sources as studies of performance incentives, reforms in Vermont, school structuring in New York City, private sector research on management, and current theories of motivation and organizational development, the book explains the underlying issues surrounding incentives and reform and provides a framework for future research and policy. The book shows, for example, how workplace redesigns could answer teachers' needs for autonomy and participation—and so bolster the professional nature of teaching. It also examines alternative ways of thinking about teacher compensation.
