State Pension Systems for Public-School Teachers. Bulletin, 1916, No. 14
Ryan, W. Carson, Jr.; King, Roberta
Bureau of Education, Department of the Interior
This bulletin has been prepared by the National Education Association's Committee on Salaries, Tenure, and Pensions in cooperation with the Bureau of Education. Its purpose is to show the extent of the teachers' pension movement in a brief and summary way, and to collect in convenient form pension legislation for public school-teachers in the United States. Pension and retirement legislation for teachers has developed rapidly in the past four or five years. Local retirement funds have in most instances given way to State systems, and there has come a general realization that some plan of retirement for teachers is essential in an efficient public-school system. No attempt is made to argue for or against any particular form of pension plan, or to go analytically into the history of the pension movement. This bulletin seeks to show the existing situation in the various States; to outline the plans that have been adopted, and give some indication of the results; and to reproduce for the information of those studying teachers' pensions several of the pension laws now on the statute books. Included are a bibliography, and three appendices: (1) Typical pension and retirement laws; (2) Teachers Pension (Clyde Furst); and (3) Notes on the Legislative History of the New Jersey 35 Years' Half-Pay Pension Law (A. W. Milbury). (Contains 6 footnotes. A Bibliography is included.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
