We need your help ...

Unlike many news outlets, EdSource does not secure its content behind a paywall. We believe that informing the largest possible audience about what is working in education — and what isn't — is far more important.

Once a year, however, we ask our readers to contribute as generously as they can so that we can do justice to reporting on a topic as vast and complex as California's education system — from early education to postsecondary success.

Thanks to support from several philanthropic foundations, EdSource is participating in NewsMatch. As a result, your tax-deductible gift to EdSource will be worth three times as much to us — and allow us to do more hard hitting, high-impact reporting that makes a difference. Don’t wait. Please make a contribution now.

    Great chart but I would love to be able to break it down by county and separate elementary from high school districts- any way we can do that? Thanks!

    This chart would be much more useful if there was a similar graphic showing total compensation. As a stand-alone chart it is very misleading. Some school districts make teachers pay the full price of health benefits, others partially subsidize, and a very few might still pay for the full cost of a teacher’s family’s heath insurance.
