The question of salary schedules, however, is not answered with the determination of salaries to be paid to members of the school staff. The factors of its effect on morale and the encouragement of professional growth must be considered. The ability of the state and the school district to finance such a schedule must be determinants. The welfare of the school, the community, and the teacher may be greatly affected by the salary polices of the board of education.
It is the purpose of this study (1) to present the philosophy and principles underlying the development of salary schedules, (2) to analyze the salary schedules of the several public schools of New Mexico, and (3) to present such conclusions and recommendations as may be pertinent.
