Not to get too far off topic, but look in and around major cities - Chicago, Boston, DC, etc. Like I said in my comment, this is only true of teachers in wealthier areas, but not unheard of.@DisneyHead123 - 100k is certainly far more reasonable to look at in terms of teacher salaries, but... being the teacher that I am... I did a decent bit of research into teacher salary scales around the country today and found very few districts that had a six-figure salary at the top of their scale. Maybe 15-20 districts across the country (almost all in New York or California), but that's a pretty small percentage when there are over 100,000 school districts in the country. I accept with your premise, but teachers making over 100k are still pretty few and far between in the US.
