The Impact of Incentives to Recruit and Retain Teachers in “Hard-to-Staff” Subjects | JPAM Featured Article

Public school teachers are typically paid according to their education level and years of experience, with no differentiation by subject. Given resistance among teachers and unions to explicit pay differentials, states and school districts have frequently sought to mitigate subject-specific shortages by enhancing non-salary compensation, such as educational subsidies. This study estimates the causal impact of loan forgiveness and bonuses on retention of teachers in Florida public schools.


Boise State Announces New Ph.D. Program in Public Policy

November 5, 2012 09:20 AM

Boise State University has announced a new doctoral program in public policy and administration. The new program is slated to begin in the fall of 2013.

"Practical in its design, the program will prepare students for careers in public and nonprofit organizations, policy research in natural resource, environmental, science and other areas of public policy in government, nonprofits, advocacy groups and consulting organizations, as well as academic teaching/research positions," said Frank Zang, Director of Communications at Boise State University.

"The new Ph.D. program will build on the work on an internationally recognized faculty, a well-respected master's degree program in public administration, and a cadre of regionally recognized policy research centers," continued Zang. It is designed to prepare students for senior level positions in public, non-profit and international organizations or positions in an academic or researching setting. The degree provides a sound foundation in current administrative practice in public administration and its cognate disciplines within the fields of public policy and management.

Applications for the fall 2013 start will be accepted beginning December 15, 2012.
