False picture of our salaries

24th October 2003 at 01:00
Your article is very misleading. You quote "Basic teacher pay, after threshold, after 14 years" of pound;33,150.

I wonder how, after more than 25 years teaching, I am still only earning pound;26,460? Please don't suggest that all teachers with years of service are so well off, because they are definitely not.
