The Opening post is from 2007, but still an interesting one. The last post from the OP says that he's now looking at Kansas.

As far as PA goes, as far as I know the city schools do NOT pay more then the suburbs. They probably should but they don't. Stop Teacher Strikes Website A beginning teacher in my school district earns quite a bit more then a new teacher in Philadelphia.

Here in CA, teachers in certain areas definitely get paid more. The district that I grew up in pays one of the best salaries even though it is one of the safest urban districts. Neighboring district which are much more dangerous to work in pay a couple hundred to thousand less. I haven't seen districts here forgiving your loans, even the ones no one wants to work in. LA might, but I don't want to live in LA county.

Alot of the schools if they are in need of teachers, they will pay fo you to come to teacher...I cant exactly remember where it was but they willbuy u a house, a car, etc...just for working for them..Yea its not the best area to work but hey you never know. I also heard about them half of your loans.. I know in TN, u can get some scholarship for teachers, but since I commute to KY and go to school there they do no offer it. But I am looking into it..im sure if you go to the fin aid website u can find stuff about it bc thats hwere I seen it

I find it interesting you write that the schools do not pay higher. I know that some Philly schools considered in a "combat zone" do pay higher for the same instructions taught and each instructor (teacher) has the same education... My brother and cousin teach in schools noted as "combat zone" and they receive a higher salary than one near them.

Forgive me if this was already said, but I think there are designations of "underserved areas," (and that could mean inner city or an Indian reservation or Alaska) and federal loans are forgiven for each year of working there, or a certain amount is forgiven after working two years. Something like that. I don't think there's anything like that with private loans.

Inner city Detroit I believe forgives 100% of loans after 5 years or something like that?

Do you guys know if this applies to a speech language pathologist that has worked contract? Not direct state employee but working fulltime at a title one school.
