dc.description.abstractThis research examined some of the factors that help explain the variance in income between male and female educators. Data from the Current Population Survey (CPS) was used to examine some of the components that determine income for teachers at the elementary/middle school, secondary, and postsecondary level, as well as educational administrators. Educational attainment and experience were found to be factors that influenced both male and female incomes. Also, both the crowding hypothesis and the glass escalator were found to account for part of the pay gap between men and women. Also, when all factors were equal, men were still found to have higher incomes than women. Although the pay gap between men and women has closed in recent years, the results here showed that there are still some factors contributing to this pay gap that need to be addressed in order for the gap to close.en_US
