    I agree with what readingrules said. I think it depends a lot on where you teach.

    Worst in Academic & Work Environment ranking... What does that mean though? It's a vague category.

    If Virginia is top five, then the rest of y'all must deal with some straight-up wretched conditions. Yikes.

    This is dead on. The lawmakers in Fla are determined to ruin our public schools. It is idiocy and criminal.

    This is my question as well.

    Though if CA were 48th in work environment I wouldn't be too surprised.... That's the reason I am never leaving my wonderful current school. Ever. It's a jungle out there.

    My state is dead last and it comes as no shock. The state is trying to dismantle public ed. This year my class size is reasonable but I don't have ANY textbooks. Nothing. Nada. I'm VERY lucky to have received my first salary increase of my career (16%) but very veteran teachers (25 years+) got pitiful 'raises' that worked out to about $5/month. It was the first raise in almost 7 years. The misleading political agendas on the radio make me want to scream.

    NC is dead last,

    and I am not surprised. We don't have adequate technology, textbooks, assistants (only in K around here), our schools look like prison yards with the chain link fences surrounding them, morale is low, teachers are leaving for other states, and the list goes on....Something has to change soon in NC.

    Apparently the politicians haven't gotten that far in their discussions yet.

    It says Michigan teachers make the most, but I guarantee that will change soon. I will probably never make the current median salary.
