Event: “Sharing Solutions” – Recruitment, effort and retention effects of performance contracts
Andrew Zeitlin from Georgetown University presents his research on the compositional consequences of performance pay in the education sector in Rwanda. H notes that in developing country education there is tremendous variation in teacher quality and internationally, these differences have lifelong effects. However, with a few key exceptions, we know relatively little about how policies affect the composition of developing country civil service workers. The key research question posed is:
Can performance pay attract, motivate and retain better teachers?
This presentation was part of a larger convening workshop for EDI, “Sharing Solutions, Sharing Strategies: A Policy Institute for Innovations in Public Services,” which involved 13 implementing partners of the programme. Participants had an opportunity to hear about all the work being carried out across the consortium, which helped identify important synergies. Researchers also had an opportunity to gain feedback on work-in-progress.
