Inside Tucson Business;9/24/2007, Vol. 17 Issue 15, p28
The author reflects on the three-part solution to teacher salary problems in Tucson, Arizona. He noted that the teachers in the city are underpaid and over-worked. He noticed that they become overly familiar to the point of outright rejection from those hearing them. He suggested that the idea that every administrator should make more than every teacher should be avoided, salary schedule be maintained and a real salary increase should be negotiated.
