National Survey of Salaries and Wages in Public Schools

May 19, 2010 1 min read

The National Survey of Salaries and Wages in Public Schools was released to Education Week by Educational Research Service as part of a research partnership.

ERS, a nonprofit organization based in Arlington, Va., has been conducting the salary survey for 31 years. The data cover the pay of public school employees in 23 professional and 10 support positions, including bus drivers, secretaries, librarians, teachers, principals, district business directors, and superintendents.

The survey data track those employees’ salaries annually from 1993-94 to this past fall. Education Week adjusted the pay in each of those years into 2003 dollars to assess how earnings fared relative to the cost of living over time.
