Backing the Wrong Horse: The Story of One State's Ambitious But Disheartening Foray Into Performance Pay

August 2017

Backing the Wrong Horse: The Story of One State's Ambitious But Disheartening Foray Into Performance Pay is part of the tenth annual publication in the State Teacher Policy Yearbook report series. This study shows how 16 out of a sample of 18 Florida districts are continuing to pay higher salary awards to teachers who earn graduate degrees than teachers whose performance stands out, despite a 2011 Florida law which mandates that Florida school districts provide the highest salary awards available to teachers who are rated "Highly Effective".
