Michigan’s falling teacher salaries push some from the field

WARREN, Mich. (AP) — Michigan’s declining teacher salaries are leaving many educators feeling undervalued and pushing some to leave the field.

The average salary for Michigan teachers continued to decrease last year, contributing to a 12% decline over the last decade, according to new data from the National Education Association, a labor union.

The Michigan Department of Education found that teachers’ average salary has stagnated since its peak in 2009, at $63,024, MLive.com reported .
