Open Access Graduate Research Paper
There has been a great deal of discussion recently concerning salary schedules for teachers based on merit pay. Effective teachers are more valuable to an educational program than ineffective teachers and deserve to be paid more for their services. But by what criteria and by whose standards should such merit be based? Can a merit pay plan be carried out objectively and fairly? If so, how? Who should evaluate a teacher for salary purposes? How many teachers in the school system should receive merit pay and how much should they be paid?
