πŸ’₯ What's the Big Deal:

This report exposes alarming trends in US teacher pay. πŸ’° From 1979 to 2022, teacher salaries stagnated, eroding their purchasing power, especially in 2022 due to high inflation. πŸ“ˆ Real salaries remained flat for decades, nullifying nominal increases. πŸ“… To enhance living standards, pay must outpace inflation. Additionally, the wage gap with other graduates widened to 38.7% by 2022, hindering talent attraction. State-wise, In states like Colorado, teachers earn 37.4% less than their peers. Despite better benefits, a 17.0% total compensation gap persists. πŸ‘₯ Community support and advocacy is needed to ensure quality education and retain top teaching talent.
