A study released Tuesday sheds new light on the depth and breadth of Indiana’s teacher pay problem – and it puts a price tag on the solution.
That’s how much the study from two reform-minded education organizations found it would take to raise the average pay for Indiana teachers to compete with neighboring states. The study attempts to quantify the size of the problem in Indiana and make recommendations for how to fix it.
Aside from raising teacher pay, the study from Stand for Children and Teach Plus stands firmly behind two initiatives to provide more support and opportunity for classroom teachers.
