What does average NYC district teacher salary really show?

Let’s think about this for a minute. I believe we can all agree that if a district has a lower average teacher salary, then that district has a higher percentage of newer teachers (lower salary) and therefore a lower number of veteran (higher salary) teachers. Right? Comment below if you think there are other factors.

So when we look at these numbers, from SeeThroughNY.net, what can we probably also agree on, if you know what happens at the DOE, is that in lower average teacher salary districts they are mostly hiring newer teachers, or pushing out veteran teachers, OR BOTH! See how these numbers relate to our administrator complaint map at the bottom.

Here is the list sorted by lowest average salary to highest. Looks like Staten Island’s District 31  and District 22 of Brooklyn love experienced veteran teachers.

So the Bronx has the lowest average salary, and therefore a lower percentage of veteran teachers. Geez, who would have thought with stories like Principal Ralph Martinez of PS 89X who fired and pushed out most of his veteran staff in the last 6 years.

UFT Solidarity and have a Yelp! for Administrators in Need of Improvement called ANOI. Here is an almost complete map of where staff is complaining about their administration and harassment.

Anyone care to compare the district salaries vs the harassment numbers? I’ll give you a hint “Look at Staten Island vs the Bronx with both salary and harassment.
