Teacher Salary Trends during a Decade of Reform. Goals for Education: Educational Benchmarks, 1995.
Teacher salaries are the single most costly item in every state's education budget. This report provides both a historical overview and recent statistics on trends in teacher salaries. The report describes the status of teacher salaries in the Southern Regional Education Board (SREB) states, defines "average" teacher salary, and discusses how school-reform initiatives have affected teacher salaries. The report also compares SREB states' average teacher salaries to the national average, discusses the effect of cost-of-living adjustment on teacher salaries, discusses the effect of the growing teacher work force on salary averages, and examines the linkages between salaries and teacher experience and teacher performance. Two figures (average teacher salaries by rank for the period 1984-85 through 1994-95 and estimated average teacher salary in SREB states for 1994-95) and four tables are included. (LMI)
