Statewide Study Presented In Olympia Monday Comparing Salaries Of Teachers

Posted: Updated:

OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) - A new analysis of Washington wages shows teachers are among the best-paid college-educated workers in many parts of the state.

But the analysis also shows educators in the Kennewick, Bremerton and Seattle labor markets are not keeping up with people in other occupations.

The analysis was presented Monday in Olympia to a task force formed by the legislature to figure out how to improve the way the state pays for education.

Teacher salaries are the biggest total expense for k-12 schools.
