The Impact of Teacher Experience: Examining the Evidence and Policy Implications
Teacher experience is a cornerstone of traditional single–salary schedules; it drives teacher transfer policies that prioritize seniority; and it is commonly considered a major source of inequity across schools and, therefore, a target for redistribution.The underlying assumption is that experience promotes effectiveness. But is this really the case? Do students attain higher levels of achievement when taught by more experienced teachers? Recent evidence from CALDER studies provides new insight into the effects of teacher experience.
