Iowa ranks 41st in teacher pay

Iowa ranks 41st in teacher pay

One reason for our brain drain:

"I want to know why a teacher in Minnesota earns almost $8,000 more than an Iowa teacher," said Linda Nelson, president of the Iowa State Education Association, which represents 32,000 teachers. "This has gone from being a state embarrassment to a disgrace."

Well, that and there's more to do in the Twin Cities than in East Soybean.

Stewart Iverson wants to know: "Where's the money coming from?" (David Yepsen suggests raising regressive taxes.)
