Byron Schlomach, the Director of the 1889 Institute, recently published a ranking of average teacher salaries adjusted for cost of living.  North Carolina’s average adjusted salary reached 29th.

That said, do not put much stock in the beginning salary ranking.  Dr. Schlomach used figures from 2013, the year that the N.C. General Assembly began boosting salaries for early career teachers.
