Can financial incentives help disadvantaged schools to attract and retain high-performing teachers? Evidence from Chile

Results show that while the award was effective in retaining talented teachers in disadvantaged schools, awarded teachers in non-disadvantaged schools tend to stay or move to high-performing schools.
