|Figure 2. Mean base salary of full-time teachers by years of experience and participating state: School year 2005–06
|NOTE: Only the listed seven states participated in the Pilot Teacher Compensation Survey. Data for Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Missouri, and Oklahoma are for full-time teachers, teaching at one school with full-time equivalency (FTE) greater than or equal to 0.9 only, and whose base salary did not include pay for other duties. Data for Arizona and Arkansas are for teachers teaching at one school with FTE greater than or equal to 0.9 only. Arizona and Arkansas did not report whether a teacher was a full-time teacher or whether the reported base salary excluded pay for other duties. Base salary is defined as the negotiated annual salary for teaching duties, excluding bonuses and extra pay for extra duties.|
