Some States Make Working in Hard Schools Easier
Keeping good teachers in the classrooms of challenging schools can be a difficult task. Some states have policies providing incentives to teachers who agree to take assignments in low-performing schools, schools that serve high proportions of high-poverty students, and schools in geographically isolated locations. In Quality Counts 2008 the EPE Research Center found that 20 states offer incentives to teachers in these hard-to-staff assignments for the 2007-2008 school year.
