Arizona ranked worst place in the country to be a teacher

A recent report put out by WalletHub ranks Arizona as the worst place in the country to be a teacher, based on financial opportunities as well as academic and work environments.

In addition to being the worst place overall to teach, Arizona was also deemed as having the fifth-highest turnover rate, third-highest pupil-teacher ratio and fourth-lowest public school spending per student. This report came out shortly after it was revealed that 500 teachers have quit their jobs in Arizona since August.

Arizona State University’s Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College Dean Carole Basile, Arizona Education Association Vice President Marisol Garcia and 2016 Arizona Teacher of the Year Christine Marsh joined Arizona Horizon to discuss the impact these findings will have on Arizona’s school system.
