Ohio Just Outside Top 20 For Best States For Teachers Study


Time to sit up and pay attention.

With World Teachers’ Day around the corner and teaching among the lowest-paid professions that require a bachelor’s degree, personal-finance website WalletHub released its report on 2019’s Best & Worst States for Teachers.

WalletHub analyzed the 50 states and the District of Columbia across 23 key metrics, ranging from teachers’ income growth potential to pupil-teacher ratio to teacher safety. So, how did the Buckeye State do?

Ohio finished 21st overall in the study, though there were some positive notes. Ohio did finish inside the top 15 in Academic and Work Environment, and third best when it comes to highest annual salaries for teachers.

However, Ohio did finish near the bottom 15 states in opportunity and competition.

The top five states for teachers, according to Wallethub, are:

  1. North Dakota
  2. New Jersey
  3. Pennsylvania
  4. Wyoming
  5. Conneticut

The top five worst states for teachers, according to the personal finance website, are:

  1. Arizona
  2. New Hampshire
  3. Hawaii
  4. Louisiana
  5. West Virginia
