Teachers Make Over $100,000 At This WNY School District
Teachers need to be paid more in Western New York. Only ONE school district in Western New York averages paying their teachers more than $100,000 a year.
Now, $100,000 is A GOOD AMOUNT of money. I am not saying that is not enough. But, on average, a lot of the school districts in the area do not pay their teachers enough. Especially, for the amount of work and responsibility our teachers have.
Buffalo Business First had a great informational post about the median incomes of each school district in Western New York. There are quite a few school districts in all 8 counties in the area--Allegany, Cattaraugus, Chautauqua, Erie, Genesee, Niagara, Orleans, and Wyoming.
