Across the country the pattern recurs: Teachers working with high-minority populations take a hit in the paycheck. U.S. Department of Education data from 2010 shows elementary school teachers who worked in schools with the highest African-American and Hispanic enrollment earned an average $2,251 less per year than teachers in the same district with the fewest minority students.
At the high school level, the largest pay gap in 2012 was found in the Philadelphia School District, where teachers with the highest African-American and Hispanic populations were paid $14,699 less than teachers in schools with the fewest minorities.
Teachers in high-minority schools are nearly twice as likely to be in the early years of their careers, though, and on lower rungs of the salary ladder.
