Teacher Rating and Tenure

by Lester Dix - 1931

RATING teachers for salary purposes is a popular administrative practice in spite of the rather common distrust of rating schemes. In 1922 Buckingham found rating of teachers practiced in 77 per cent of 156 city school systems and approved by 84 per cent of the 156 superintendents. There was clear indication in 45 per cent of the cities that salaries depended upon ratings. Norton reports that in 1928 teachers were rated in 71.2 per cent of 66 cities of over 100,000 population and in 64 per cent of i'6i cities having 30,000 to 100,000 population. While only 2.1 per cent and 15.5 per cent respectively of the cities in these two groups reported that rating automatically determined salary, 40.7 per cent of the larger cities and 51.8 per cent of the smaller reported that supermaximum salaries were based wholly or in part on ratings.
