Master Teacher Premiums are a component of Idaho’s Career Ladder plan that gives teachers the opportunity to earn an additional $4,000 per year. Since this is newly approved piece of the teacher compensation puzzle, there are naturally a number of questions about the specifics of the plan.

In this podcast he answers questions about how the plan was developed, who is eligible, and what the portfolio evaluation system will look like.
