Teacher Rotation and Student Outcomes: Experimental Evidence from Uganda- Policy Brief


Ugandan policy mandates periodic re-assignment of teachers between schools.

Results suggest that policymakers designing teacher incentive schemes need to train teachers on the details of the incentives and should accompany incentives with pedagogical support.
