Kansas teachers make less starting pay than the national average, according to a survey by the National Education Association, the organization that represents teachers in salary negotiations with school districts.

The average starting salary nationally was $38,000 annually, while the starting pay for Kansas was slightly less than $35,000. The Kansas salary is actually higher than in some surrounding states. For instance, Nebraska starts teachers off at $34,000, Colorado starting pay is $33,000, Oklahoma and Missouri come in at $32,000.

(FYI, If you want to make the most starting pay, head to New Jersey).
