Educator Pay Survey ...

Educator Pay Survey
In January 2013, School Improvement Network conducted a national survey of educators to find out educator perceptions about pay, work hours, and opportunities for increased educational opportunities and salary increases. 5,068 educators responded from 46 states. On average, educators reported working an average of 12 hours a day, with 70% feeling they were fairly compensated for their work. 81% of educators said they have pursued additional training or certification to increase salary. Only 23% of educators state that they would alter their teaching methods if a bonus were given for improved student performance.
