Incentives and teaching effectiveness

“The most important role for incentives is in shaping who enters the teaching profession and who stays,” said Eric A. Hanushek, a professor of economics at the Hoover Institution at Stanford University. “Washington’s incentive system will attract talented teachers, and it’ll help keep the best ones.”
That is from this NYT article. Monetary incentives for teachers can spur innovation by improving education (this is the argument in Tabarrok's new book).
