Compensation disparities

While on the surface I'm sure people will say that "of course" suburban districts have more highly paid educators, and that this is why they have high rankings. But perhaps these high ratings by U.S. News and World Report and Pittsburgh Business Times could be the result of the large number of seasoned teachers. 
One of the biggest complaints that families had previously was the high turn over of teachers in the rougher schools- and conversely the stability in thehigher scoring schools. This has been lost since 2006-- and now we try for a team of rookies (as some suburban schools sometimes refer to new teachers). New teachrs do invigorate a school, especially when combined with experienced teachers. "
