Montessorio education is the latest of a wave of high-profile education-related initiatives that has shaken the American education system.
A wave of reforms has led to some of the biggest pay increases in the history of the US.
The most dramatic of these is the new, higher salary structure for teachers, which will see them earn $3,853 per year, according to an Associated Press article from November.
Montessori school teachers will receive a salary increase of $2,967 per year.
This will be a whopping $10,000 increase over their current base salary of $1,000.
A new set of high performance incentives, which are expected to raise the teacher’s salary by $1 million a year.
The new salary structure will allow teachers to earn an average of $3 million a decade, the AP reported.
In addition to their higher salary, teachers will also receive a set of performance incentives that will pay them $1.5 million in performance bonuses each year, which would increase the teachers salary by another $1 billion over their existing base salary.
The new incentive is being designed to increase the salaries of teachers who excel at specific areas, such as mathematics and science.
These include:Teachers at Montessorios schools have been making a push for higher salaries, with some teachers calling for $3 billion in new funding to fund the new pay structure.
This is the second big pay increase for Montessories teachers in a few years.
The previous increase was $3 per hour, and the new raise will see a $1 per hour increase.
According to the AP, a major reason teachers are demanding higher pay is that they have been able to earn more on the side by doing their work in classrooms, rather than in administrative roles.
This new increase will help to offset the $2 billion in cuts the state has announced to Montessoris funding.
More to come.
