Databurst: Strategic Teacher Compensation

This policy snapshot from the National Council on Teacher Quality (NCTQ) provides a state-by-state comparison of legislation on teacher compensation based on four key factors: effective performance, working in high-needs schools or subjects, and having relevant, non-teaching work experience. Highlighting promising policies in Louisiana and Utah and other noteworthy state policies by region, NCTQ presents examples of how states have designed strategic compensation systems while providing some flexibility and support to their districts.
