NSW Proposes To Raise Teacher Pay To $130,000 Amid Teacher Shortages

Posted on

In light of Australia’s ongoing struggle to fill teaching positions, annual teacher salaries may soon top $130,000.

The new proposal comes after a string of strikes that have taken place over the last several months, during which teachers have walked off the job in an effort to seek more compensation and improved working conditions.

Due to the challenging working conditions, a large number of educators, according to a study that was published not too long ago, have indicated that they want to quit the profession over the next five years.
