Bay State educators were ranked as having the highest average salary across all states at $82,349 a year. In the study, WalletHub had this to say:

Some researchers have found that more resources — or taxes paid by residents — typically result in better school-system performance.

Massachusetts was not the only New England state to rank high in the study. Connecticut came in at #2, with New Hampshire closely behind at #5. Vermont also performed well, placing at the #10 spot, with Rhode Island right behind it, at #11. Maine also did well, coming in at #13.

And, in case you were interested, New Mexico has the dishonor of coming in dead last. New Mexico, according to the study, has reportedly the worst school system in America.
