Gaumnitz, W.H.
Bureau of Education, Department of the Interior
The training, the tenure, and the professional status of teachers and other professional workers in the rural schools of America are to a large degree circumscribed by the rewards offered, both financial and social. It has long been recognized in a general way that such rewards in rural schools are meager in comparison with those in urban schools and in comparison with those in other gainful occupations. But the detailed facts have not been sufficiently known, and the relationships of these meager salaries to the educational opportunities of the rural child are not fully realized. This report shows the salary status of the teachers and other professional workers in the rural schools of the United States for the year 1924-25, and it shows the changes that have occurred in these salaries during a period of years. Sections of the report include (1) Introduction; (2) Sources and scope of study; (3) Proportion of counties reporting; (4) General survey of the numbers and percents of rural teachers receiving salaries of various amounts; (5) Salaries of teachers of rural schools compared with salaries of teachers in urban schools; (6) Comparative salaries of teachers and length of school term; (7) Cost of living and rural teachers' salaries; (8) Relationship of training to rural teachers' salaries; (9) Status and progress of salaries in rural schools considered by States; (10) Status and trends of salaries of rural school principals by States; (11) Salaries of county and other rural superintendents of schools in 1922 and 1928; and (12) Conclusions. (Contains 19 tables and 2 footnotes.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
