By: Jon Corrigan

Leading up to International World Teachers Day on Oct. 5, a study from WalletHub reveals Michigan has the highest median annual teacher salary (adjusted for cost of living) in the U.S.

The study, which lists 2016’s Best and Worst States for Teachers, shows Michigan’s median teacher wage, $70,042, is two times higher than in Hawaii, the state with the lowest, at $34,063.

Michigan ranked 31st overall in the study, which analyzed the best teaching opportunities in all 50 states and the District of Columbia – looking at 16 key metrics, including average starting salary, pupil-teacher ratio and school safety.

New Jersey, Massachusetts and Illinois topped the list, with Arizona, West Virginia and Hawaii rounding out the bottom.
