Hmmm...almost as stinky as FL.This is for Cheluzal.
I was looking this up for someone else but I expect you will be interested in it. It is the official Teacher Salary Study for 2012-2013.
Listen, I have never complained about my salary. I knew it going in, I don't need a lot of money, and I am blessed. Own a home, car paid off, getting advanced degree....don't live check to check.
But....with what teachers deal with, it's not comparable to what it needs to be. The problem is not necessarily the starting; it's that you can never really get up. In other businesses, you can climb over the years. My check has decreased each year with more deductions...plus, it takes you to the END of your 30-year career to be at a respectable salary.
I know I won't be rich as a professor, but it'll be better and enough to live comfortably on.
