No correlation in Michigan schools between salaries and results

By Jarrett Skorup | Michigan Capitol Confidential

The average teacher salary in Michigan’s top 10 highest paying districts for 2013 was over $81,000 per year. But there appears to be no correlation between higher paid educators and student outcomes.

The information comes from the latest Bulletin 1014, which was just made available from the Michigan Department of Education.

The most generous paying districts, in order, are Westwood Community School District, Warren Consolidated Schools, Center Line Public Schools, Walled Lake Consolidated Schools, Harper Woods School District, Livonia Public School District, Allen Park Public Schools, Utica Community Schools, Grosse Pointe Public Schools and Saline Area Schools.
