Summary The genesis of the Burnham scales for teachers in England and Wales is mentioned and their operation for secondary teachers described. Next follows a quotation from Norwood on the improved status of English secondary school teachers. Similar scales for secondary teachers in the Transvaal, Queensland, and New South Wales are then described. The present salary scales for secondary teachers in Victoria are given, the system of classification is described, and figures to show the slowness of promotion are tabulated and explained. Then follow official estimates of expenditure on salaries of secondary teachers. Three schemes including unbroken scales are postulated and their costs calculated. The scheme advocated involves an extra cost of 124,000 pounds to 144,000 pounds. The advantages of the unbroken scale are summarised.
