Convergence et divergence comparées du salaire des enseignants du primaire dans l'échelle de développement économique

Abstract : Remunerations for primary teachers along the scale of economic development: convergence or divergence ?
The relative distribution of wages at the aggregate level, without reference to individual characteristics, is linked both to structural aspects in local labour markets and the burden of history that makes that profession remains paid differently as compared to others. The teaching profession for the primary school has several characteristics of interest, it is a common profession, nearly one percent of labour force and whose conditions and qualifications are relatively close around the world. This text is dedicated to measure the relative pay off for teachers. Mainly, the position for a national economy
on the range of development explains purchasing power for teachers; furthermore the relative position of teacher salaries across other professions presents some links related to economic development, since the teacher salary would be paid less as comparison for poorest countries. On the other hand, the recent dynamics shows that there is a pressure on teachers' wage growth.
