Table 3 . 1 : Percentage Change in Teacher Salary and Benefits Packages , 1989 - 99

  • Published 2000

Abstract

The growth in K-12 spending during the 1990s was used, in part, to increase the number of teachers and pupil support staff. While individual teachers may have received salary increases in excess of inflation, statewide average teacher salaries did not keep pace with inflation. Inflation-adjusted average salaries declined 4 percent due to salary schedules lagging slightly behind inflation. The hiring of new teachers at lower salaries to accommodate enrollment growth and reduce elementary class sizes also contributed to this decline.
