No Educators Left Behind? 'Teacher Trust' Would Boost Pay, Provide More Career Mentoring

Worried that the United States could lose ground in global competitiveness, the College Board’s Center for Innovative Thought has unveiled a plan for a national “Teachers Trust” that would increase public school teacher pay in the future.

According to an article by Greg Toppo in the July 12 edition of USA Today, federal, state, and local governments, as well as private enterprise, would fund the trust. Several blue-ribbon panels over the past few years have proposed innovative ways to pay teachers, but the idea of a national trust is thought to be unique, as is the push for private-sector contributions to supplement salaries.

Acknowledging that salary isn't the only factor in teacher turnover, the group also wants to improve working conditions and foster mentoring of younger teachers.

"If we don't have great people going into teaching, we don't have world-competitive schools," says former West Virginia governor Gaston Caperton, who heads The College Board, the nonprofit organization that owns the SAT and the Advanced Placement program.
