Teacher pay revamp long overdue

I’m very pleased the Queensland Government is considering linking teacher pay to teacher performance (see today’s Courier-Mail), as improving pay for the best teachers will help stop the leakage of the best teachers out of the education system and may motivate many teachers to perform better. Of course, it will be important to get the design of the performance pay scheme right, so teachers are rewarded for genuine improvements in student outcomes, and don’t unfairly benefit from simply having a favourable socio-economic mix of students.

I’ve previously discussed performance pay for teachers in a few posts:
