Teacher Pay and Teacher Quality. Attracting, Developing, and Retaining the Best Teachers

By James Stronge, Christopher Gareis & Catherine Little

While many working in the teaching profession cite intangible rewards as reasons for staying in the profession, concrete rewards such as salary, benefits and working conditions are inextricably linked to recruiting, motivating and retaining highly-qualified teachers. This timely text examines the fundamental link between teacher pay and teacher quality as well as the extent to which it is aligned with student achievement.

Existing compensation models are reviewed in order to provide a practical, research-based approach for developing a comprehensive, best-practice teacher compensation system. School administrators can use these synthesized, innovative findings to:

  • Determine the most practical compensation model for achieving their school's objectives
  • Examine different pay options used across the country
  • Connect their school's compensation program to organizational goals
  • Discover how to attract and retain high-quality teachers
