According to a new study, teachers are more likely to receive a $20,000 bonus than their peers.
The report from the Center for Research on Education Outcomes (CREDO) at the University of California at Berkeley shows that teachers in the top 10 percent of the pay scale received $26,200 in total compensation, while those in the bottom 10 percent received $11,200.
The study, which was funded by the National Education Association (NEA), also found that teachers who earned a salary of more than $100,000 had higher median salaries.
Despite these high salaries, the study also found a correlation between teacher pay and student test scores, as teachers in lower-paid classrooms were less likely to test proficiently.
“We found a very strong relationship between teacher salary and students’ test scores,” said lead author David E. Lippman, a professor of education economics at UC Berkeley.
“It’s not surprising to see this relationship.
And it’s also not surprising that the teacher bonus should be so highly correlated with students’ scores.”
Lipp, who specializes in the relationship between school and student achievement, said the findings suggest that teachers and students should be more focused on the impact teachers have on students’ education.
According to the CREDO study, the median salary of teachers in California is $51,000, or $19,500 higher than that of non-teachers.
This is in line with the average salary of all California public school teachers in 2016.
The median salary for teachers is also higher than the national average of $45,800.
In addition, the average teacher’s salary is significantly higher than teachers who work for the state’s other public schools.
According to the National Center for Education Statistics, there are 563,000 public school educators working for the five California public districts that administer the education funds.
As teachers, we are constantly on the lookout for new ways to make our schools better.
Our schools are not only an asset to our communities, but also an asset for our economy and for our communities.
And that’s something that’s reflected in our salaries,” said CREDE Chair, Michael Waldron.
We’ve also got to recognize that the people who are making the decisions about what to teach are not just making the right decision, they’re making the best decision.
Teachers in California should be encouraged to work harder, more efficiently, and better collaboratively to create better teaching experiences.
