Summary

Recent concern about teacher shortages has raised questions about the attractiveness of the teaching profession. This issue brief examines whether teacher salaries have increased in recent years, how they compare with salaries in other entry-level occupations, and how they vary within and across school districts in the nation. Data on scheduled teacher salaries for school years 1987-88 and 1990-91 were obtained from the Schools and Staffing Survey (SASS), a nationally representative sample of public school districts. Findings indicate that teacher salaries are important indicators of the relative economic well-being of teachers and of general teacher supply-and-demand conditions in the United States. First, teacher salaries kept pace with the increase in the cost of living during 1988-91. Second, although teachers may find higher salaries in certain regions of the country and in the larger school districts, entry-level teacher salaries are not competitive with salaries paid in other entry-level positions. Third, the real cost in salary to new bachelor degree recipients who choose a teaching career, particularly for those in computer science, mathematics, and physical sciences, remains high. Three tables are included. (LMI)
