The Center for Teaching Quality launched the TeacherSolutions model in February 2006 when a select team of 18 highly accomplished teachers from throughout the nation was assembled in a first-of-its-kind approach to begin to study and unpack the research literature on professional compensation. Through ongoing virtual conversations and a series of virtual Webinars, these expert practitioners have assessed and debated the issues with researchers well-versed in value-added methods. They also have engaged in structured dialogue with policy analysts, community activists, teacher union leaders and practitioners who have been involved in a variety of performance-pay plans across the nation. This report represents the first of what we hope will be many policy discussions to use TeacherSolutions — calling on the true experts in the field to address policy issues. These experts experience the impact of policy where it matters most: in America’s classrooms, where these accomplished teachers make a difference every day.
