    I am curious as to what folks think the AVERAGE compensation package should be to attract the best and the brightest of our college graduates to take on the job of educating ALL those who will determine our future.

    my concern is more that it include defined-contribution retirement and HSA insurance benefits; that alone will significantly drive down the total cost of hiring a teacher. This would allow localities and states to actually increase teacher pay, while still decreasing the danger to their budgets of future pension nukes.

    But what do you feel the total compensation average should be to attract the best and brightest of our college graduates?

    i would imagine that would differ fairly wildly from one state to the next, just as the cost of living does

    i do know that pay is going to matter more than compensation when it comes to attracting new talent. someone who is 24 is going to care alot more about an extra 5-10 grand a year than they are about the specifics of their pension fund.

    i'm also not sure our brightest and best should all go into teaching. the private sector always needs intelligent and inventive individuals.

    I agree with cpwill, attracting the 'best and brightest' to the classrooms of America is not a smart allocation of this countries' intellectual capital. I do not want morons in our classrooms either (though I would want people of above average intelligence in America's colleges). The reality is, I would be more than satisfied with people of only average intelligence instructing across America. As a result, I believe a fair and equitable salary for a public school teacher would be approximately $35,000 per year. In other words, America's average income of $46,300 adjusted to 9 months of work (rounded up to the nearest thousand).
