Teacher Salaries, ATRs, and Closing Schools: A Preview
These schools employ a total of 822 teachers, and a number of these schools have relatively high average salaries. Given current budgeting rules, through which schools are allocated dollars rather than positions, what's the chance a principal will, all else equal, hire an excessed teacher from Franklin K. Lane who makes $80,000 when he can hire a teacher with 3 years experience for about $46,000? (See the teacher salary scale here.)
