Economic Status of the Teaching Profession, 1972-73.
National Education Association, Washington, DC. Research Div.
The primary purpose of this report on the economic status of the teaching profession 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 other occupations. The report, through 101 tables and a minimum of text, provides information on such topics as salaries of the instructional staff, earnings in comparable occupations, and trends in income and family budgets. Trend data are included wherever possible. For reference, a section is included to show trends in some of the most significant national economic indicators. (Author/JA)
