$100,000 minimum wage?  Last year,  no state offered a starting salary of $60,000.  Policy think tanks across the political spectrum agree that wages for those with comparable education as teachers are too low by at least 20%.  Surprisingly, this pay gap exceeds the current gender gap — 18%.   

The sobering fact is that the average ACSD#1 salary is $25,700.  Perhaps knowing that district wages are too low almost everywhere softens the blow.




Opinion: How about a minimum salary for teachers? $50,000? $60,000? or even $100,000?
