The 15 best US states to be a public school teacher

Some states treat teachers better than others.

Personal finance site WalletHub analyzed the states where teachers enjoy the highest salaries and most supportive administration in their annual ranking of the best and worst places to teach.

WalletHub ranked the states that scored highly in two key categories:

  1. “Opportunity and competition,” which includes how competitive salaries were, teacher pensions, and income growth.
  2. “Academic and work environment,” which includes the quality of the school system, how many students per teacher, and the rate of turnover. 

Washington, Utah, and New Jersey topped the list. New Jersey has some of the best school districts in the country, while teachers in Seattle recently negotiated a contract for salaries as high as $124,000.
