The committee on teachers' salaries and cost of living of the National Educational Association deems itself fortunate in securing the cooperation of the Bureau of Education of the United States in publishing this bulletin on the actual salaries paid to teachers in elementary, secondary, and higher grades in all parts of the United States. It was arranged with Commissioner Claxton that this task be placed in the hands of James C. Boykin, editor of the Bureau of Education. This report, in comparison with the resort of the committee on salaries, tenure, and pensions made in 1905, should present a clear outline of the movement of teachers' salaries throughout the country, showing where they have remained stationary, where they have advanced, and where they have retrograded. It should also show a basis for the determination of the relative standing of cities with regard to the compensation of teachers. The bibliography contained in this report was prepared by Dr. Bird T. Baldwin, professor of education in Swarthmore College, and Walter H. Mohr. A bibliography and an index have been provided. Individual sections contain footnotes. (Contains 46 tables.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
