Career ladder, tiered licensure will help reward Idaho’s outstanding teachers

Idaho teachers should receive higher pay. In 2013, education stakeholders throughout Idaho, including teachers, administrators, state and local board members and community and political leaders were asked to take a comprehensive look at how to improve Idaho’s education system. The Governor’s Task Force for Improving Education worked for several months to bring forward 20 recommendations based on research, best practices and input from educators. Among those recommendations was a plan to increase pay for Idaho teachers to attract and retain great teachers.
