Utah is known as the Beehive State for its busy bees, but you may not be very busy there if you’re looking for a well-compensated job in early childhood education. Childcare workers and special education teachers have the best chance of finding a well-paying job, but that job is most likely under the national average. Salt Lake City and Logan are the cities most likely to offer higher-paying jobs, overall, in this field. Despite promising salaries for child care workers and special education teachers, Utah ranks last for kindergarten teacher pay.
