|The teacher labour market and pay: How does it compare to other professions?
The aim of the analysis presented in this paper is to provide an overview of the teacher labour market in South Africa using household survey data, with a view to adding empirical evidence for the period 2012 - 2017 to complement that for 2000 - 2007. The first objective is to describe the teacher workforce in terms of age, gender, racial classification, and educational attainment, with a view to determining whether these have shifted over time. This is followed by an empirical analysis of how teacher pay
compares with that of non-teaching professions in the South African labour market, as well as pay within the private and public sectors more generally, and among professionals specifically.
