Did you know that public school teachers in Miami-Dade County, Florida, earn $3,350 to $10,000 a year more than teachers with the same degree and experience in Atlanta, Georgia? Or did you realize that teachers in Naples, Florida, are paid over $1,000 a year more than their counterparts in Atlanta, while teachers in Fort Myers earn about $700 more than their Atlanta colleagues? I could go on, but you get the idea. Teachers throughout Florida are paid significantly higher salaries than teachers in the highest paying school district in Georgia.
