Teachers in the Big Apple are well-paid in the US

A new statistics claim that the New York State teachers are currently the highest-paid teachers in the whole of United States of America. The Rockefeller Institute of Government came forward with the report that has taken American Education Department by storm. According to the report, the average salary of a teacher in the Big Apple is $79,588, based on the statistics by the SUNY’s think tank.

On the website of the arm of New York State University, The Nelson A. Rockefeller Institute of Government said that they had curated a new and highly interactive data tool. With the help of the data tool, comparing the average salaries of the teaches along with the salary of the people with a bachelor’s degree in each state of the USA for 15 years becomes easier. The tool can also show if the wages of the teachers are falling or if the salaries are increasing.

According to the website, the tool showcases a vivid picture of the salaries of the teachers around the US. One of the added benefits that come with the tool is that it can also show the deviation of the salaries among teachers in 2002 different from the salaries of the teachers in the year 2019.

The only reason as to why think tank has curated this interactive tool is that there have been numerous strikes around the country recently. And it is the teachers who curate these strikes. The salaries of the teachers are turning into the focal point for the forthcoming presidential election of 2020.

The teachers in Alaska came in the second position and behind them were the teachers of Connecticut at $78,670 and $77,717 respectively. The teachers from South Dakota and Oklahoma were at the lowest at $42,450 and $43,192 respectively. Since 2002, the New York teacher’s salaries have increased for over $19,000, according to the State University of New York’s arm.
