According to Wallethub.com South Dakota ranks 50th in school teacher pay and 48th overall in 'Best and Worst States for Teachers.'

While most teachers obviously don't go into education to get rich, it seems to me somewhat of a travesty that this state doesn't see adequately compensating the people that teach and foster our kids as a priority.

Now there is a new study out ranking the Best School Districts in South Dakota.

k12.niche.com rates the Best Public School Districts. They rank 8,738 school districts based on dozens of key statistics and 4.6 million opinions from 280,000 students and parents. A high ranking indicates that the district contains great schools with exceptional teachers, sufficient resources, and a diverse set of high-achieving students who rate their experiences very highly.  Read full methodology here.

Here are the Top-10 Best South Dakota Schools.  See the complete list here.
