Traditional public schools could learn some important lessons from the flexibility that charter schools and private schools use in compensating teachers, suggests a report by the Center on American Progress.
The Washington-based think tank examined teacher compensation in charter and private schools. It found that charter and private schools were less likely to use a strict salary schedule to determine teachers' salaries, and they were more likely to use non-financial incentives, such as flexible leave policies and teacher training programs, to draw qualified teachers.
