The Probable Effect of Declining Enrolments on Average Elementary and Secondary School Teacher's Salary from 1977 to 1986. A Study.
Thorman, Richard I.
Computerized analysis of current statistical data and projected declining enrollments in Metropolitan Toronto show that the decrease in staffing requirements over the next ten years will increase the average salary of teachers in uninflated dollars mainly through the increase in teachers' average experience. Boards with lower than average teaching experience will face a greater increase in average salary than boards with higher than average teaching experience. Attrition rates have an impact less significant than that of experience. An increase or decrease in the pupil/teacher ratio has its greatest impact on average salaries in the first year of implementation. The timing, duration, and magnitude of the impact on average salaries depends on the enrollment projection used. In elementary schools the average salary may increase up to ten percent over ten years, compared to a six percent increase if enrollment were static. In secondary schools the figures are eleven percent compared to six percent. The bulk of this document consists of illustrative tables and graphs. (Author/PGD)
