The Education Exchange: Giving Teachers Valuable Feedback and Rewards for Improvement

While serving as chancellor of D.C. Public Schools, Michelle Rhee developed an innovative system of teacher evaluation to incentivize high performance and teacher improvement. In this episode of the podcast, she talks with Paul Peterson about how the IMPACT system promotes teacher retention and performance through pay.

An analysis of the effect of the IMPACT system on the quality of teaching, “A Lasting Impact: High-stakes teacher evaluations drive student success in Washington, D.C.” appears in the Fall 2017 issue of Education Next.
