The Effects of Teacher Pay Reforms on Teacher Pay, Teacher Careers and Student Attainment
The proposed research addresses the question 'What works in the recruitment and retention of teachers?', by examining the impact of recent teacher-pay reforms on teacher recruitment and retention and the teacher labour market more broadly.The main objectives are to: 1. Improve our understanding of how reforms to teacher pay have affected teacher pay and progression and average student outcomes, using descriptive and modelling techniques to identify: a. Effects on schools: i. how school-level teacher pay and variation in pay evolved before and after the introduction of pay-reforms; ii. which schools moved away from the old pay structure in response to the reforms and how they differ from schools that did not; iii. how the pay reforms may have affected schools' ability to fill teacher vacancies. b. Effects on teachers - how the pay reforms may have affected: i. teacher entry wages; ii. teachers' wage progression; iii. teacher retention and entry to the profession; iv. teacher mobility within and across schools; v. whether the pay reforms are linked to changes in teacher characteristics through changes in those entering and leaving the profession; c. Effects on students: i. how the pay reforms may have affected average student attainment at the school level in the short-term. 2. Influence policy formation and school pay setting behaviour through the dissemination of our findings.
