The first brief in this series, Teacher Shortages: What We Know, explores research on teacher shortages and highlights recent state task force findings. This report is one of five policy briefs examining strategies states are using to address shortages:

  1. Alternative Certification
  2. Financial Incentives
  3. Induction and Mentorship
  4. Evaluation and Feedback 
  5. Teacher Leadership 

Providing financial incentives can be an effective strategy for recruiting and retaining teachers. Definitions of three financial incentive programs are provided, followed by a summary of supporting research on this strategy, state policy examples and considerations for policymakers.
