LA Teachers salaries drop below regional average
Posted on 2/20/2018 12:33:00 PM.
After hitting the Southern average for teacher’s salaries back in 2007, Louisiana has fallen behind. Teachers are now paid $1,700 less than other teachers in the region. With a one-billion-dollar shortfall, it’s unlikely any extra money will go towards the 47,000 public school teachers.
 
Legislative and Political Director for the Louisiana Federation of Teachers Cynthia Posey says the state’s teachers are lured away by higher wages elsewhere.
