A new report has shown that a starting salary for a lower secondary teacher in Spain in 2014 was around €36,000.

It puts Spain fifth out of the 36 developed countries that were analysed by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).

The entry level salary was nearly €7,600 above the OECD average, and was only behind Luxembourg (€70,000), Switzerland (€53,500), Germany (€50,000) and Denmark (€41,000).
