A suggestion for alleviating the shortages of teachers in particular teaching fields. School districts must adopt a new kind of salary schedule that allows salaries for relatively scarce teaching skills to be raised, without simultaneously being compelled to pay higher salaries for all teaching skills. The authors urge that boards of education, school administrators, and other citizens adopt additional salary differentials, seriously weighing the potential gains against the difficulties. Such a step is essential if individual districts and the nation as a whole are to provide adequate education at acceptable costs.

This report is part of the RAND Corporation paper series. The paper was a product of the RAND Corporation from 1948 to 2003 that captured speeches, memorials, and derivative research, usually prepared on authors' own time and meant to be the scholarly or scientific contribution of individual authors to their professional fields. Papers were less formal than reports and did not require rigorous peer review.
