U.S. and State Estimates of Relative Teacher Pay with a Fun Discussion of CPS Data Issues

May 15, 201912:00 pm1:30 pm


The recent surge in teacher strikes across the country brought to attention many issues that concern public education including class sizes that are too large, inadequate staffing of critical positions, crumbling building, outdated textbooks, and teacher pay. Allegretto has been tracking teacher pay and compensation for fifteen years. In this talk, she will present her most recent work on the teacher wage penalty with new state estimates. The talk will also touch on Current Population Survey concerns of top coded and allocated data and how they influence estimates.


Sylvia Allegretto is the Co-Chair of the Center on Wage and Employment Dynamics.
