Jun 02, 2014 03:07AM, Published by Bill Gilman, Categories: Business, Today, Schools

Do you think your child's teachers are well paid? Do you think they are overpaid?
Ask 100 people how much teachers should make and you will likely get a wide variety of answers.
The Boston Business Journal recently published a survey that looked at the average salaries for public school teachers all across Massachusetts.
The results were Fascinating and a little surprising.
At the top of the heap was the Concord-Carlisle School District, which pays its teachers an average salary of $95,947. A close second was the Lincoln-Sudbury School District, with an average salary of $94,087.
At the other end of the spectrum was Gardner, which near the bottom at 269th in the state with an average salary of $63,726.
So where did Tewksbury fall?
Tewksbury ranks 156th in the state with an average teacher salary of $70,593 in 2013. This is up from $68,965 in 2012 and up from $62,972 in 2008.
Tewksbury teachers make slightly more than their counterparts in Wilmington ($68,334) and Billerica ($67,940). But they rank below both North Andover ($72,619) and Andover ($80,529).
Overall, the median salary for teachers in Massachusetts is roughly $69,000. That's up from around $61,000 in 2008.
