A new report from National Education Association shows Minnesota pays its teachers more than 26 other states but less than the national average.  According to data released yesterday by the NEA, Minnesota’s teachers make an average of 59,100 dollars per year, while the national average stands at 65,100 dollars.  Minnesota pays its teachers less than neighbor Wisconsin but more than Iowa, South Dakota, and North Dakota.  NEA President Becky Pringle said she worries the pandemic may have set the industry back from the modest gains it was making in boosting pay.
