The Dog’s Bollocks

Truth is like a dog’s bollocks – pretty obvious if you care to look. on why merit pay for teachers lacks merit

“The overwhelming evidence in both England and the USA suggests that a more effective way [than merit pay for teachers] for teaching standards to improve is through improving professional development, accreditation and qualifications, measures that are not necessarily encapsulated in New Public Management systems.”

So concludes Alex White in a comprehensive analysis of Performance Related Pay systems and New Public Management theory as applied to teaching and schools – Merit pay for teachers has no merit.

The regular reader of The Dog’s Bollocks will know that I have posted many times on this particular issue. I post the link to Alex’s article here in the interests of furthering the debate.
