From the start, we are already behind countries like China and Japan. What they do in 12 months, we have to do in 9.

This is the foundation for the continually increasing salaries of educational psychologists. In America, we need better efficiency in the process of creating educated and highly capable students, and ultimately, workforce. Our future simply depends on the success of educational psychologists to create a better understanding of the best practices in creating educational curriculum, educational technologies, classroom management, assessment techniques, and organizational learning.

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reports the following median salaries for Educational Psychologist positions in August of 2009:

  • Educational Psychology Professionals in Elementary and Secondary Schools - $68,340
  • Educational Psychology Professionals in Research and Development - $84,060

As the effects of a global economy become more prevalent in America, the necessity for advancing our educational practices will lead to evolving hiring and compensation practices in the most vital positions effecting the quality of America's educational system.

Currently, the outlook for psychologists and psychology-related jobs is good. The BLS predicts employment of psychologists to grow by 15 percent from 2006 to 2016, faster than the average growth rate for all occupations.
