SD Teacher Pay Continues Near Bottom Of National List

(Pierre, SD) — South Dakota teacher pay continues to hover near the bottom of the National Education Association rankings. The state ranked last five years ago and initiated efforts to raise teacher pay, including a sales tax hike. The increased tax initially helped, but South Dakota hasn’t kept up with other states’ salaries. Average teacher pay in South Dakota in 2020 was about 49-thousand dollars. Only Mississippi had a lower average teacher salary.
