9% of People Think Teachers Are Overpaid
I'm not saying you have to believe that America's teachers are underpaid. Maybe you think that shaping and educating our children is worth what they get. But this?
According to a new survey, 9% of people think public school teachers are overpaid.
If you're wondering, the latest data shows the average public school teacher makes about $61,000-a-year, but that can vary a lot by state.
In places like New York, California, and Massachusetts, the average salary is over $80,000... but in Utah, Missouri, Arizona, Kansas, South Dakota, Florida, New Mexico, West Virginia, and Mississippi it's under $50,000.
