Kentucky and national teacher pay (the numbers)

Depending on education and experience, Kentucky teachers earned from 82 percent to 91 percent of national average in 2007-08 (latest year available), with the newest teachers coming closest to national levels of pay. Below, the dollar figures and then the percentage comparisons.

Source note: The starting data comes from Digest of Education Statistics: 2009.  These numbers reflect base salaries (leaving out pay for extra duties and extended days), and each data file includes a note saying that it “includes regular full-time teachers only; it excludes other staff even when they have full-time teaching duties (regular part-time teachers, itinerant teachers, long-term substitutes, administrators, library media specialists, other professional staff, and support staff")
