HR Headline: Pay for Performance in Public Schools Remains Controversial
“Pay for Performance” has made inroads in business, but has remained a hard sell in public school systems. There are some successful examples where teacher pay has been linked to student test scores. In Minnesota some districts have stopped giving automatic raises for seniority and base 60% of all pay increases on performance. In Denver, unions and school districts designed an incentive program where teachers receive bonuses for student achievement and for earning national teaching certificates. However, some plans have not worked. For example, Cincinnati teachers voted against a merit pay proposal and Philadelphia teachers gave their bonus checks to charity rather than cashing them. It appears that having teachers involved in planning the incentive system is one key factor to success. The same can be said for all incentive plans – if employees don’t buy into them, they will not work.
Questions to Research:
1. How could an organization measure the effectiveness of their pay-for-performance plans?
2. From an employee’s perspective, what are the disadvantages of using a pay-for-performance plan?
3. From an employer’s perspective, what are the disadvantages of using a pay-for-performance plan?
