Summary by The Accomplished Teacher
"The gap between what the U.S. pays its teachers and similarly educated workers is greater than in most other developed countries, according to a recent report from the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development. On average, elementary-school teachers in the U.S. earn 67% of the the earnings of an average college-educated worker -- less than the OECD average of 82%. A gap in earnings also exists among middle- and high-school teachers."
