How Much Do Teachers Get Paid?

Our new interactive data tool displays average teacher salaries compared to the average salaries of bachelor’s degree holders in each state over a 15-year period to examine where teacher salaries are gaining and where they’re falling behind.

With teacher salaries becoming a focal point of the 2020 presidential race, and with strikes happening in various parts of the nation over teacher pay, the tool presents a clear picture of the state of teacher salaries in the US and how they’ve changed since 2002.
