Amazon teachers’ salaries are not the same as the national average
Posted On July 25, 2021
Washington — Teachers’ salaries for U.S. public schools are higher than they are nationally, but that doesn’t mean teachers earn more than the average.
According to a new report from the National Education Association, teacher salaries in all 50 states and the District of Columbia average $23,000 per year.
That’s up from $22,600 in 2014.
The salaries for teachers in California and New York were the same in 2014 as they were in 2014, with a difference of $10,000.
Teachers in Georgia and Illinois were the most expensive in the country, with teacher salaries averaging $19,700.
Teachers’ salaries at public schools in the U.N. are lower than the national averages, but still higher than the wages teachers earn in the private sector.
Teacher salaries in the United States are lower because of a number of factors, including the fact that teachers don’t receive full-time paid leave, according to a report from The Washington Post.
The report also found that teachers in some states receive less than half the federal minimum wage, while teachers in other states receive more than double the minimum wage.
The report found that the average teacher salary in Hawaii is $30,900, but teachers in Arizona make $37,500.
The average teacher in Arizona is making $39,300 while teachers on the other side of the country make $51,000, according the report.
In the states with the highest teacher salaries, such as Alaska and Arizona, the pay gap is even larger.
Teachers working in Alaska earn $42,300 per year, while those in Arizona earn $53,300.
The teachers in Washington, D.C., earn $44,000 a year.
Teaching salaries in Alaska were up 5 percent from 2014, while teacher salaries were down 6 percent.
Teachings in Arizona were up 9 percent from last year, but teacher salaries declined by 13 percent.
The average teacher’s salary in Alaska is $48,400 while teachers at the other end of the state earn $55,600.
