Survey of Teachers' Salaries in U.S. Public School Systems with Statistical Appendix.
Oliver, John , Comp.
This survey of salary schedules for classroom teachers (elementary and secondary), is primarily a listing of the 1974-75 salary schedules of more than 880 school systems. It also provides a statistical appendix which includes tables showing salaries for college graduates, comparative average annual salaries of professional occupations, cost-of-living and family budget information, and AFT vs NEA salaries. The data presented reveal that this year's average salary increase again failed to keep pace with inflation. The survey also shows that beginning salaries for teachers with bachelor's and master's degrees increased by about 6 per cent over the previous year. In addition, a marked reversal of the narrowing differential between starting salaries in public school teaching and private industry is indicated. (BD)
