Teacher pay

The Star-Telegram (via Jobsanger) has a great post up about high teacher turnover and massive wage disparity at poorer school districts throughout Texas. Granted, it's common sense, if you pay people less they tend to seek better employment. What is surprising is that wage disparities exist intra-district...

An Arlington teacher working at a campus with fewer poor or minority students is paid an average salary that is $2,700 to $4,700 more than a counterpart who works at a campus with many poor and minority students, according to Education Trust, which used 2005-06 statistics from the Texas Education Agency.

Until the teachers of this state start voting right, it is hard to have any sympathy for them.
