As the pandemic continues to affect the entire country, many have wondered whether it is fair, safe, or practical to ask teachers (and students) to return to class.
School districts and local leaders will soon answer these questions. But in one way or another, teachers will do their jobs this fall.
Primary school teachers in the U.S. earned an average annual salary of $ 63,930 as of 2019, according to the U.S. Department of Labor Statistics. Middle school teachers earned an average of $ 63,550 at the same time. University teachers cost an average of $ 65,930 a year.
However, teachers' salaries vary considerably depending on the country. The countries also differ in terms of which level pays off best. Primary school teachers often earn less than their middle and high school colleagues, but not always.
Below are the average annual wages for elementary, middle, and college teachers in each state. The ranking of the federal states depends on the primary school salary.
