Reexamining Teacher Preferences and Compensating Wages.
Levinson, Arik M.
Economics of Education Review, v7 n3 p357-64 1988
Examines the compensation levels necessary to induce white teachers to teach in black schools, using 1968 Massachusetts data. Teachers seem to demand higher wages to teach less wealthy, lower-achieving students, not necessarily nonwhites. Wealthy districts with more white students may demand and pay more for better teachers, reversing expected wage benefits. (Includes 4 tables, 2 notes, and 14 references.) (MLH)
