75. $66,449 is what the average
Edited on Thu Aug-05-10 09:51 PM by Riftaxe
public school teacher in my district earns...so pretty certain the local teachers not starving. However, since mostly funded by local property taxes, it is a bit disconcerting that every new toy we give the schools (football facilities, new track & field facilities, etc) student performance continues to deteriorate :(

Could probably dig out the cost per pupil, but teacher salary alone is an indicator that it might be more :)

Sadly, extracurricular activities for the last 20 years have taken center stage, over academics...


heh my late father taught at the high school for 27 years, as he used to say...should have started a football team in class of '73 (apparently there were some rather large students in that class) :P

BTW this is a regional public school district in rural New Hampshire :)

edited to add "local" since this is dealing with my district which i would imagine is a lot more generous then the average
