Yesterday’s Florida Senate PreK-12 Committee discussion of the Best and Brightest Teacher Scholarship Program: I didn’t hear a single mention of how low teacher salaries impact the shortage of math and science teachers

Since the subject of how salaries impact the shortage of math and science teachers didn’t come up during yesterday’s discussion, I thought it would be appropriate to repost this plot of starting salaries from the American Community Survey and fivethirtyeight.com.

Salaries matter.  If Florida is going to successfully address its profound problems in math and science achievement, it is going to have to address salaries for math and science teachers.
