Teachers work more hours with a lower average base pay than other working Americans with similar vocations, according to a national RAND survey released Tuesday, June 18.

Teachers who took part in the annual Rand State of the Teacher survey reported working an average of 53 hours per week. The average similar worker logged 44 hours a week, according to the nonprofit research organization.

The teacher data was compared with the 2024 American Life Panel companion survey, a national survey of working adults.
