New report shows Fayetteville is a great place for educators to live and work

Charlotte, N.C. GoodCall – A new report released by the GoodCall research team shows that Fayetteville was just ranked the 31st best place in the U.S. for teachers. The rankings were based on data collected from the U.S. Census Bureau, the National Center for Education Statistics and Indeed.com.

Fayetteville made the list due to high teacher pay, along with strong educational values, a low cost of living, and a solid job market for teachers. According to GoodCall analysis, Fayetteville has nearly 70 currently available teaching jobs.

“The teaching profession has become more and more challenging in recent years, due in large part to high-stakes testing and budget cuts”, says Paul Southerland, Senior Analyst for GoodCall. “We set out to find which cities still offer a great quality of life for teachers, and Fayetteville is certainly one.”

The methodology for the report took into account the average salary, number of teaching jobs, teaching jobs per capita, high school graduation rates, cost of living and amenities score for cities nationwide.
