Survey: Low Pay Hurts SD Teacher Hiring, Retention

Survey: Low Pay Hurts SD Teacher Hiring, Retention
PIERRE, SD -

South Dakota school superintendents responding to a survey say low pay is an important reason they are having trouble hiring and keeping teachers.

A total of 130 school superintendents responded to the survey sponsored by the Associated School Boards of South Dakota and the School Administrators of South Dakota. Nearly 79 percent of the superintendents say the pool of applicants seeking teaching jobs in the past three years has been inadequate.

About half the superintendents say increasing pay would enhance the number and quality of people applying for teaching jobs. About 70 percent of the superintendents say low pay is an important reason teachers have left their districts.

The two education organizations are using the survey to help persuade the South Dakota Legislature to boost state aid to schools.
