This might not come as a surprise to anyone who grew up in Upstate New York and has visited this city. If you asked anyone in the area to tell you what city they think was a top small city that made the list of the best in the United States, I think most people would say the same one. Now a poll is out that just proves it to the whole country.
There is a study out that lists, out of the entire country, which is the best state to be a teacher. The criteria varied between fair pay, teacher turnover and per student teacher ratio. The top state may surprise you.
