Why should a young person in Utah make the career decision to become a teacher? Why do potential teachers often choose another line of work? And how do Utah’s pay scales for teachers compare to other Mountain states and the nation?
In this edition of Utah Thrives, we’ll talk about the new Utah Foundation report Apples to Apples: How Teacher Pay in Utah Stacks up to the Competition. We’ll hear from Utah Foundation President Peter Reichard, Vice President and Research Director Shawn Teigen, Utah State Senator Lyle Hillyard, Envision Utah CEO Robert Grow and Utah Education Association President Heidi Matthews.
