Florida vs. Georgia teachers’ salaries: More data points
Florida Section AAPT chapter president Ken Shacter, a teacher at Jacksonville’s Robert E. Lee high school, was kind enough to add some data points to the salary analysis I gave a few days ago. His expanded plot, which is given here,
carries the salary scales out to year 30 and includes the Duval County salary schedule. The Duval County schedule is even more relevant to the discussion than Leon County: Duval is on the Georgia boundary, and is one of the state’s biggest school districts. It is also perhaps the state’s most challenging school district for teachers.
There are two data series labeled “Georgia”. The red one is the base statewide salary schedule for teachers with bachelors’ degrees. The green series is with the math/science bump signed into law in 2009. This law starts new math/science teachers at the salary level corresponding to six years of teaching experience on the statewide salary schedule.
Ken correctly pointed out that I didn’t say that the original plot was for teachers with bachelors’ degrees and not any advanced degrees, and I certainly should have.Explore posts in the same categories: Uncategorized
