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?
