New teacher pay stagnant, low in Michigan

Jul 24, 2017

Almost everyone agrees that good teachers are important for our children. However, how those teachers should be compensated can lead to heated debates. Take, for example, the one that just happened over the new teacher retirement system approved in the latest state budget.

Michigan Radio’s Jennifer Guerra is taking an in-depth look at how we go about paying teachers in Michigan and what it means for teacher performance and retention in the state. 

Her four-part series is called “A Look at Teacher Pay in Michigan.”

She spoke with "Morning Edition" host Doug Tribou.
