The Impacts of Performance Pay on Teacher Effectiveness and Retention: Does Teacher Gender Matter?

The Impacts of Performance Pay on Teacher Effectiveness and Retention: Does Teacher Gender Matter? <p>ABSTRACT:</p><p>Teacher performance pay is increasingly common in the United States. We assess the “incentive effects” of performance pay—the change in behavior of teachers present before and after a reform—with a focus on whether male and female teachers respond differently. Evaluating three performance pay programs in North Carolina, we find clear evidence of a gender difference: while male teachers’ value-added remains flat before and after the introduction of performance pay, the value-added of female teachers declines. We also document suggestive evidence of a gender difference in retention, with men more likely to remain in schools with performance pay.</p> http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Human Resources University of Wisconsin Press
