Iowa State Dept. of Public Instruction, Des Moines.
DURING 1963-1964, 418 SPECIAL CLASSES FOR EDUCABLE MENTALLY RETARDED (EMR) AND 70 CLASSES FOR TRAINABLE MENTALLY RETARDED (TMR) CHILDREN WERE SPONSORED BY 141 SCHOOL DISTRICTS AND 57 COUNTY BOARDS OF EDUCATION IN IOWA. COUNTY BOARDS AND SCHOOL DISTRICTS SPONSORING THESE PROGRAMS RESPONDED TO A STATE QUESTIONNAIRE ON SALARY DIFFERENTIALS PAID TO TEACHERS. RESULTS SHOWED THAT 58 PERCENT OF THE DISTRICTS SPONSORING EMR CLASSES PAID SALARY DIFFERENTIALS WHILE 19 PERCENT PAID A DIFFERENTIAL TO TEACHERS OF TMR CLASSES. MEAN SALARY DIFFERENTIAL IN DISTRICT SPONSORED CLASSES WAS $312 FOR EMR TEACHERS AND $271 FOR TMR TEACHERS. FOR COUNTY BOARD SPONSORED CLASSES, 42 PERCENT REPORTED A SALARY DIFFERENTIAL (MEAN $229) FOR EMR TEACHERS, AND 26 PERCENT REPORTED A DIFFERENTIAL (MEAN $333) FOR TMR TEACHERS. BOTH SCHOOL DISTRICTS AND COUNTY BOARDS GAVE RECRUITMENT AS THE MAJOR REASON FOR SALARY DIFFERENTIAL. BAR GRAPHS PRESENT DATA ACCORDING TO SIZE OF SCHOOL DISTRICT. (DF)
