The purpose of this study is to provide empirical evidence on the economic incentive policies designed by school leadership teams in private subsidized schools in Chile. The case studies are investigated using a qualitative methodological approach involving the comparative analysis of data collected through in-depth interviews. The findings show that the incentives have been variously designed in relation to purpose, structure and value. Some are targeted at teachers, while others reflect student learning outcomes based on standardized tests, student attendance and teaching staff work discipline. Economic incentive policies should ensure the impact on learning outcomes. However, this was not done in the cases investigated in this study. Further investigation is required to address this research area, as it has not been sufficiently explored in the literature.
