A new study shows that Mississippi is one of the better states for teachers.

According to WalletHub’s 2023 Best & Worst States for Teachers, Mississippi did not fall in the top 10 or bottom 10. Rather, the Magnolia State was listed at No. 19.

The study was based on 24 key factors, including income growth potential, pupil-teacher ratio, and public school spending per student.

Mississippi’s No. 19 ranking comes as the state’s largest-ever teacher pay raise continues to set in. In 2022, lawmakers voted to give public school educators an average raise of $5,140 increasing the starting pay for Mississippi teachers from $37,000 to $41,500.
