New York Teacher's Contract, Teacher's Pay In Comparison to Median
For a single earner: $39,463
From CNN today: "The pay of starting teachers [in New York] would increase to $42,000 from $39,000, with a new maximum base pay of about $92,000, up from $81,000."
So the range of starting teacher pay is $42,000 - $92,000, depending on qualifications, experience, etc. This range has at it's midpoint (roughly) the median income for a family of four. The range is completely above the median income for a single-earner household.
