As the year draws to a close, we look back on the most talked about Teacher Trendlines from 2014. We covered everything from teacher salaries to leave policies and in this edition, we highlight some of the most popular Teacher Trendlines from the past year.
Just as it was in 2013, our most popular Teacher Trendline in 2014 covered teacher salaries, highlighting those districts with the lowest and highest salaries for teachers with a BA and MA. But this year’s teacher salary coverage had a twist— we looked at the purchasing power of teacher salaries in the context of housing affordability.
In addition to teacher salaries, other 2014 trendlines covered include declines in student enrollment, teacher leave policies, teacher excessing and placement, teacher tenure and substitute teachers.
