Grade 1 is a Bachelors degree.
Grade 2 is a Bachelors degree +15 credit hours.
Grade 3 is a Masters... and so on.
A teacher will be paid the same whether they teach K or 4th grade.
That's not what I said though. I was saying, that the reason she was paid higher, was because K was considered a critical age affecting the child for later. That was the reason I was given. Hence, the higher pay for K.
