Teacher's Salaries. [Newspaper Article] — Singleton Argus — 1 December 1880
Teacher's Salaries. FROM an official document issued by the Department of Public Instruction, we take the following extract: In the month of March last salaries Here paid to teachers by the Council of Education at the rate in round numbers of £162,000 per annum. But teachers also receivod school fees estimated to amount to, £75,000 for the year. Their oggregato emoluments would therefore reach £237,000 por annum.
