Salary Trends for Teachers: Survey and Analysis.
Gould, Jewell C.
This report is intended to be a reference document to assist local unions in developing their own analyses. It encourages comparison of teachers' salaries to the salaries of other workers and provides some insights as to how the basic needs of members are being met by the compensation available. Tables provide information on: (1) current teacher salary levels; (2) scheduled teacher salaries for the 1980-81 school year based on contracts negotiated by American Federation of Teacher locals; (3) salary levels for non-teaching occupations and groups; (4) teachers' salaries and financial needs; and (5) the Consumer Price Index. Resources for further information are included as well as examples of formulas for calculating salary levels using the Consumer Price Index. A sample salary analysis worksheet is attached. (JD)
