We've taken a hard look at a lot of statistics and reports in hopes of identifying the places for teachers...to teach and live!
The Comfort Score examined average salaries (both starting and overall) and compared that to the cost of living. We then ranked each state by this metric to find which states were friendliest to teacher's - from a salary perspective.
Tell us what you like about it. Tell us what you don't like about it. We'll keep working on this score to make sure we're finding the states and cities (that'll be next) for teachers to teach & live. Thanks for help to make TeacherPortal a resource for teachers nationwide.
