(2009) claims: Incentives are a logical policy option because tradition, union contracts, and the structure of teacher labor markets prevent simply reassigning the best teachers to schools with the highest need. Incentives have included signing bonuses, pay supplements, loan forgiveness, tuition subsidies, and housing assistance. (p. 12) This study concludes that working conditions, especially principal support, had more influence on job choice than salary, implying that money might be better spent on attracting, training, and retaining principals than to offer higher starting salaries to teachers in schools with low socioeconomic status and diverse demographics....   [tags: Education, teaching]

His ability to coin such phrases as the “global village” and his ideas on how media influences culture allowed McLuhan to become an icon of the counterculture movement of the 1960’s. Some scholars argue that McLuhan’s voice was even “swallowed up in the popular cultural movement” (Surette)....   [tags: Argumentative Persuasive Essays]
