From The Economic Policy Institute: The Teacher Pay Penalty ‘Has Hit A New High’

Over the last 18 years, the Economic Policy Institute (EPI) has closely tracked trends in Teacher pay.  Over these nearly two decades, a picture of increasingly alarming trends has emerged. Simply put, Teachers are paid less (in weekly wages and total compensation) than their non-Teacher/college-educated counterparts, and the situation has worsened considerably over time.  Providing Teachers with compensation commensurate with that of other similarly educated professionals is not simply a matter of fairness - but is necessary to improve educational outcomes and foster future economic stability of Workers, their families, and communities across the U.S.  In this Labor News Report, the EPI explains in greater detail why Teacher pay and compensation is so important.
