Average MPS Teacher Compensation Tops $100k/year

[Milwaukee, Wisconsin] MacIver News Service – For the first time in history, the average annual compensation for a teacher in the Milwaukee Public School system will exceed $100,000. 

That staggering figure was revealed last night at a meeting of the MPS School Board.

The average salary for an MPS teacher is $56,500. When fringe benefits are factored in, the annual compensation will be $100,005 in 2011.

  • Jen Healy

    Wow! Great reporting…unbelievable. It\’s time to renew my teacher\’s license!

  • KY

    So what are the 46K in benefits they are getting? Seems fishy, that\’s one amazing health plan.

  • I think you mean just over $43,500. I\’m familiar with teachers\’ health care benefits and pension. That dollar amount seems realistic.


    Any individual who thinks these teacher\’s salaries are not just deserved has never been a teacher, let alone a teacher for MPS.
