Teachers Pay


Story Details

South Australian teachers have been engaged in a tug of war over pay rates for most of this year. The SA teachers are currently the lowest paid in Australia and the offers so far made by the Government have been rejected as not going far enough to redress the growing gap.

The shortage of teachers has led to lowering the standards required for enriolment into courses and according to teachers can only be remedied by improved pay and career paths to make teacher a more attractive creer choice.
