How much are teachers in your district paid?

A searchable database with information from the California Department of Education shows how educator salaries have grown in recent years for more than 650 school districts.

Not accounting for inflation, average school salaries across the state grew 10.6 percent from 2008 to 2014. By comparison, median earnings for California workers with a bachelor’s degree grew by 7 percent over the same period.

Education has seen some funding growth and if the current budget is approved that would mean a 50 percent increase from 2011. Most of these funds have gone to salaries, which are about 85 percent of budgets.
