Constructing Different Salary Schedules for Administrators.
Kincaid, Wayne H.
Although many wage theories have been proposed to explain the process whereby some agreement is reached about who is to receive what salary, none seems adequate to explain all wages in general. Even indepth studies attempting to establish a ranking of jobs for compensation purposes have not found general acceptance by school systems. Instead, a school corporation is more likely to study the salary structure of other similar corporations and make comparisons and adjustments on this basis. Such studies usually result in the establishment of a base salary, which then may be adjusted by factors relating to experience, size of school, level of education, and responsibility. Organizations of local school administrators have a role to play, but this role should be determined by professional people acting in a professional way. (Author)
