Summary

This paper applies the Carlsson-Robinson Theory of public employment wages to examine differences in salaries and quality of teachers using data from the Coleman Report. A modified Carlsson-Robinson model of quality determination is complemented with four testable hypotheses of salary determination. Teacher salaries were found to be determined by the level of per capita income in the systems employing them and by the salaries paid in competing occupations in the area. The local cost of living, the quality of the local labor force, and the quality of the teachers themselves were found to be statistically insignificant in determining differences in salary. The same analysis indicates that teacher quality is determined by the quality of the local labor supply and by the salaries offered to teachers. This result supports the view that school system officials do use their salary budgets to seek high-quality teachers and, moreover, that such teachers are attracted by those higher salaries.
