After navigating the complex political landscape of the New York City Board of Education, the teacher’s union, and the mayor’s office, in 2006 the city is ready to launch a pilot program to incentivize teachers. This three-part case provides students with background on what has constituted successful teacher incentive programs in other school systems and the components of New York’s pilot program…asking students to analyze the results of New York’s program and consider the strengths and weaknesses of its design.
