New York is the Top State For Teachers
New York remains the best state for teachers despite some of the hardships that teachers may have had to face over the last year.
The past two years have not been easy for anyone. Many careers have gone through struggles since the COVID-19 pandemic began. Some industries are crumbling, some are getting better and some of flourishing. Teaching remains to be a good career path if if you live in the state of New York.
Up until the coronavirus pandemic and the 2 week quarantine many people took teachers for granted. It took two weeks of homeschooling to show parents that not everyone is meant to be a teacher.
Being a teacher is no easy task and I'm not saying it is without its flaws. What makes the Empire State the best for teachers?

Another benefits that teachers have is that Wallethub reports that public schools in New York have higher budgets than other states and spend more than any other.
