Fundamental Principles for Grading Teachers' Salaries

by Edward S. Evenden - 1921

No one doubts that teachers differ in their ability to teach, and that the results of their work vary widely in their value to the community. There is likewise unanimity of opinion that it would be desirable, educationally and economically, that teachers be paid according to the quality of the services they render. There is, unfortunately, an almost equal unanimity of opinion that, desirable as this procedure is, it has not been done, is not being done, and will not be done. So widespread is this belief that it must be the result of some principles or experiences more fundamental than the reasons usually given, such as the lack of a measure of teaching-merit, the indifference of superintendents, and the unwillingness of teachers to be judged. It is the purpose of this article to point out some of these underlying causes and, where possible, to suggest the remedies.
