Mid- and Late-Career Teachers Struggle With Paltry Incomes

This brief from the Center for American Progress looks at compensations rates for teachers across the states and finds that not only are teachers being paid less than they deserve, they are not being paid enough to support their families. In order to stem attrition rates and encourage good teachers to remain in the profession, some states and districts have implemented innovative compensation schemes. The brief takes a look at some of them and finds that initial results are promising.
