(Portland, OR)  --  Oregon's public school teachers earn nine-percent less than they would in the private sector.  That's the takeaway of a study by the state Center for Public Policy.  The report shows that teacher salaries are actually 22-percent less than similar public workers, but their health and pension benefits make up the difference in the compensation gap.  The study's author points out that competitive salaries for teachers help attract and retain high-quality educators.
