Default Teachers salaries.

Spent my career in public education, much of it in Fl and some in Lake and Sumter. I think there is some mistake about the salary schedule, not sure and not trying to take an "I know attitude", but if they have actually gone "backward" on the schedule since I retired, you must have been looking at the B.S./B.A. level which, in most public school districts in most states, stops anywhere between the 12 to the 15th year. There are few teachers who are content to spend an additional 15, even 20 years at a "bottom out" level. This is intentional on the part of the residents of communities, school board members, and administrators, to encourage teachers to not end their education at the bachelor's level and 30 years down the road have not added to their skills and education. Having said that, of course the "best" teachers in all the districts where I was privileged to be a building and district central administrator, were not always the highest paid. It is exactly like those of us who have spend out careers in school administration know, the number of dollars spent per student (past a base level of course), does not translate to an outstanding education. When I worked as a principal and central office administrator, when zero based budgeting was "imposed" on us, the truth is, money was no longer foolishly spent. Just some thoughts. Interesting that those in the most affluent schools and districts are turning against "bookless" schools where children spend the school hours the same as home and recreation hours; staring at screens. The public CAN have fabulous schools, for free, NO, but most outside the education community have no idea how much can really be accomplished with actually a minimum budget. Food for thought from 40 years experience at every level, elementary school to inner city high school principal, to central office administrator, to university professor, money is not what needs to change. Hope this sparks thoughts, not nasty remarks and hateful statements without thinking..... everyone, even "poor" communities can have exceptional schools.

The moderator asked that we not discuss this topic in another thread so I have started this thread.

Jump in with Statistics. I will try to find fair and valid and recent ones.

Here's the first one;

Teacher Salaries By State | Average Salaries For Teachers | Beginning Salaries For Teachers | Teacher Raises | TeacherPortal.com

According to this one Jazuela, there is not a lot of difference between Connecticut and Florida.

Every morning, I look @ several newspapers online-one of them is the Morris County Daily Record, its states that in NJ teachers salaries vary very differently from town to town, there are over 700 different school districts in NJ--where I lived the Median was $88 K, with the high being $107--in NJ teachers are allowed to bank unused sick days, it adds up to a nice severance package upon retirement also teachers get extra pay for coaching and other duties

I volunteered at a new Habitat for Humanity house in Wildwood in the spring that was being built for a Wildwood teacher and her daughter. Her income was so low that she qualified. It is pathetic.

Here is quality of education by state according to U.S. News;
Access Denied


However as Chatbrat says; Quality in public education varies a lot within the State.

Not just teachers, Florida salaries are @ least 30 years behind what they were in NJ, --when you go to sell a house in NJ one of the most important factors is"the school report" if a school district is excellent it drives real estate values--,go to Zillow & look up Chatham Boro & Chatham Twp- in 1985 a house that was sold for $165,000 is now valued for $985000--people who move there don't have to pay for a private school

Hi All !!!!




Does anyone have a suggestion as to how "we" determine a fair wage?? What's a formula which would work, district by district??


There should be a way to determine a fair starting wage and index by CoL by district, but I've never seen a proposal.


Just wondering, not helpful.

Not bad for a part time job ....Also negotiated is a calendar work year that limits teachers to 181 work days. Most Americans work 245 days per year meaning teachers get nearly 13 weeks more vacation time than the typical US worker. Michael Robertson: The Myth of the Underpaid Teacher
Thank you for bring this topic to my attention

It's not a stretch to say that the future of a country's success...lies in the quality of their teachers and school systems.

Research China's latest push to increase their higher education systems and their buying up of foreign universities...as well as building more of their own.

I am always amazed, and disheartened/disgusted, at those who think most teachers here in the US...already make too much money.

That a lot of blue-collared, mostly HS educated, often make so much more than those we trust to guide and teach our children & grandchildren to become successes in the future...tells me something is really wrong.
