Teacher pay has remained relatively flat over the past decade, complicating school districts’ efforts to attract and retain qualified teachers, concludes a state-by-state salary report by the National Education Association.

The NEA’s annual survey found that for the 2003-04 school year—the most recent figures available for the report—pay increased only slightly over 2002-03. And since the 1993-94 school year, teacher salaries have grown by just 2.9 percent in inflation-adjusted dollars.

The report also ranks the states based on their average teacher salaries.
