NCLB and the Teacher Workforce

Susanna Loeb

“The subject of teacher pensions is a critical and understudied area for education reform, both because of the effects on the teacher workforce and on school finance. Districts are looking for new ways to recruit and retain high quality teachers in their on-going efforts to raise student achievement and narrow achievement gaps, and the structure of retirement benefits is a potentially important factor. Many states and districts also face increasing costs for their current retirement benefit systems – possibly exacerbated by recent developments in the value of pension funds.”
