INTRODUCTION.



On September 24, 1919, the Superintendent of Schools,
Frank V. Thompson, addressed a communication to
superintendents of certain cities of the United States
asking (a) that each superintendent verify certain
information on salaries as they existed in 1917; such
information was sent him in tabulated form; (6) that
he furnish corresponding information for his city of
September, 1919; (c) that he indicate what salary
changes were contemplated to take effect on, or after
January, 1920; (d) that he indicate how many increases
had been put into effect since 1917, what state legisla-
tion had been passed affecting salaries, and the tax rate
for all municipal and school purposes.

On October 2, 1919, a similar communication was
sent to superintendents in Massachusetts.

Requests were sent to superintendents in the following
cities in the United States of 200,000 population or over.
The cross (X) following the name of the city indicates
that the city furnished the information which is pre-
sented in Part I of this report:

EXPLANATION OF TERMS.

In the elementary school four ranks of teachers only,
kindergartner, assistant, rank next to principal, and
principal, were considered; and in the high school three
ranks, assistant, rank next to principal, and principal.

The assistant is always the regular teacher, without
executive or administrative duties.

The rank next to principal includes the teacher who.
in addition to his teaching, has some executive or admin-
istrative duties. He or she is variously called submaster,
master 's assistant, assistant principal, head assistant,
supervising assistant, vice principal, and in high school
may be head of a department.

The principal includes the person wjio is directly in
charge of the administrative and executive work of the
school. He or she may or may not do some teaching.

EXPLANATION OF TABLES.

The salaries of each of the foregoing ranks of teachers
are tabulated in five different tables. (1) A basic



SALARIES OF PUBLIC SCHOOL TEACHERS. 9

table giving the minimum, annual increase and maxi-
mum. (2) A table showing the minimum salaries
only. (3) A table showing the maximum salaries only.
(4) A table showing the increases in the minimum of
the 'salary of September, 1919, over the salary of
September, 1917. (5) A table showing the increase
in the maximum of the salary of September, 1919,
over September, 1917.

In those tables giving minimum, annual increase,
and maximum salaries when the annual increase is not
regular, the amount of increase is given together with
the number of years in which such increase is given.
Where it is not possible to determine the number of
years, the lowest and highest increase is given.

In tables where the salary of men and women are
both indicated the word "same" is used to indicate
equal pay for both sexes. Where the schedule gave
no information concerning sex the same salary for women
is indicated as for men. The words "no data" are used
to indicate that nothing is said in regard to the salary
in question. If the returns gave no data for the rank
such city is left out of the table.

Tables 11 to 15, 26 to 30, 46 to 50, and 61 to 65 deal
with the rank next to principal. These tables are some-
what unsatisfactory, because, first, the name of this rank
varies greatly in different cities; and, second, such a
rank does not exist in some cities.

In Tables 7, 8, 42, and 43 the words in parentheses
"seven years," "four years/' etc., indicate the number
of years necessary to reach the maximum salary.

In all summaries showing minimum salaries the
highest minimum is determined by taking the largest
amount paid as an initial salary. The lowest minimum
is the lowest amount paid as an initial salary. The
"average" is found by adding all the salaries given in
the table and dividing by the total number of salaries
recorded.

In all summaries showing the highest maximum, the
largest maximum paid in any city is taken.



10 SCHOOL DOCUMENT NO. 19.

EXPLANATION OF COMPARISONS OF BOSTON.

At the close of all tables of minimum or maximum
salaries, and all tables showing increases, a statement
shows the relative position of Boston in relation to the
cities from which returns were received. Such rankings
are made as far as possible with conditions which are
similar to those that exist in Boston.

In tables of kindergarten teachers the comparison of
Boston is always made on the basis of the one session
or half day schedule. In Tables 2, 3, 37, and 38, kinder-
garten teachers, Boston's rank for first assistant is
determined by comparison with the higher paid kinder-
gartner when two grades are given. When only one
salary is given it is considered as applying to both grades.

Whenever Boston's rank is indicated as " third or
fourth" it means that some other city pays the same
salary as is being paid in Boston.

PROPOSED INCREASES TO TAKE EFFECT AFTER

JANUARY, 1920. *

Only five cities (Buffalo, Indianapolis, Milwaukee,
New York, and Portland, Ore.) indicated that changes
in the salary schedule have already been made to take
effect in January, 1920. These changes are indicated
in footnotes attached to Tables 1, 6, 11, 16, 21, 26,
31, and 36.
