Teacher Compensation: A Comparison of Public and Private School Teachers, 1984-86. Survey Report.
The 1985-86 National Survey of Private Schools collected comprehensive data on teacher salary, other income, and "in-kind income" from a national sample of private school teachers. The 1984-85 Public School Survey collected similar data from a national sample of public school teachers. The results of these two surveys provided the best opportunity in many years to compare teacher compensation in the public and the private school sectors. This report presents the results of such a comparison. Public school teachers had significantly higher average salaries than private school teachers. Three data tables are appended. (JD)
