TO START. No. As of the most recent pay scale, someone with a Doctorate would need to reach stage 4 on the pay scale before they would even sniff 70k.

If they aren't making that much now, they sure as hell weren't getting that back then. Either you are misremembering or they are. There is no way that someone is getting paid that much.

To put a point on it. 75k in 1980 would equal to between 125-150k today. No one is getting paid 120k + to teach kindergarten unless it is some super prestigious private school... and I'm not sure even they would make that much.

As for the math... I took an average from a few inflation calculators on the net. I will admit not perfect science but it gives us a general window.

It's as high as $71,259 in some areas.

It is called a median because it takes into account ALL teachers regardless of how long they have been teaching, where they teach, and how much education they have.
