In an effort to close the achievement gap, teachers in Britain are being offered “golden handcuffs” to stay in secondary schools in the nation’s most destitute areas. An $18,000 bonus for three years of service is expected to be extended to about 6,000 teachers in 500 schools. The proposal comes on the heels of a report indicating that poor children remain educationally disadvantaged. The cost of the incentive will be split between government and participating schools.
