A Comparative Study of the Salaries of Teachers and School Officers. Bulletin, 1915, No. 31. Whole Number 658
United States Bureau of Education, Department of the Interior
The Committee on Teachers Salaries and Cost of Living presented its first report to the National Education Association in January, 1913. In the present report the committee is able to carry out in part one of the purposes of which it has had in mind from the beginning of its labors, namely a comparison of salaries paid in 1903-4--as recorded in the report of the committee of the National Education Association on salaries, tenure, and pensions--and salaries paid in 1912-13. This bulletin also includes salary figures for cities and towns between 2,500 and 5,000 population for the year 1914-15, and shows the amount paid for teachers' salaries as compared with other items of school expenditure for certain city school systems. It gives salaries of rural-school teachers in typical counties, with the school term in days, and salaries of county superintendents in the several States. It seeks to analyze and interpret certain of the 1912-13 figures, and it institutes useful comparisons between the remuneration of school workers and persons in other occupations. This bulletin was made possible by a cooperative arrangement between the Bureau of Education and the National Education Association Committee on Teachers' Salaries and Cost of Living. The statistical work, which makes up the bulk of this report, was in charge of Miss Roberta King, one of the authors of "The Tangible Rewards of Teaching." The interpretative comment for the comparative tables was furnished by Dr. Harlan Updegraff, professor of school administration in the University of Pennsylvania. Acknowledgment is also due to Dr. Joseph Swain, chairman of the Committee on Teachers' Salaries, for helpful suggestions in the preparation of this report. Following a Prefatory statement, the following contents are included: (1) Introduction and summary; (2) Statistics of salaries for 1914-15; and (3) A study of salaries of elementary teachers. (Contains 18 tables and 11 footnotes.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
