The new pay was announced on Monday by New Jersey Governor Chris Christie.
“The New Jersey Teachers Training and Employment Development Council (NTTEDC) is proud to announce that the New Jersey State Teachers Training Commission will begin providing a $10.00 hourly salary to teachers working at a new school in New Brunswick.
“New Brunswick is a special place for our teachers and we are proud to be a leader in the field, and to offer a significant raise to our local teachers.” “
With a total of 9,400 new teacher positions available for teachers in New England, New Jersey is the first state to offer teachers a new wage,” said NTTEBC President Scott Hodge.
“New Brunswick is a special place for our teachers and we are proud to be a leader in the field, and to offer a significant raise to our local teachers.”
The New York City-based New Jersey Education Association (NJEA) also announced that its members would be eligible to apply for teacher salaries in the state.
New Jersey has one of the highest teacher turnover rates in the country at 2.4 percent, but it is one of only two states that has a pay freeze at the state level.
The other state is New York, which allows teachers to start their job search for a minimum of six months, but has no freeze.
“This is an opportunity to create new opportunities for our school system, and it’s one that we’re excited to take advantage of,” said NJEA President Mike Cusumano.
“Our members are proud of the work that our educators are doing to provide a great education for all of our children, and we hope that they’ll see the value in making the jump to teaching in New York.”
