Economic Status of the Teaching Profession, 1971-72.
Stieber, Gertrude N.
The primary purpose of this report is to assist State and local education associations in their efforts to improve the compensation of teachers at all levels -- elementary, secondary, and higher education. This compendium of currently available data provides a single source of technical information for assessing and comparing the economic position of teachers with that of professionals in other fields. It also contains information for comparing the present and past salaries of teachers with the wages paid to workers in industry and others. The report, consisting of 92 tables and a minimum of text, is designed as a handbook covering the latest available information on salaries of the instructional staff, earnings in comparable occupations, and information on trends in income and family budgets. Trend data are included wherever possible. Since the condition of the national economy has a direct bearing on the economic status of the teaching profession, a section is included to show trends in some of the most significant national economic indicators.
