I wonder if the "teacher" category includes college professors. Including them would certainly pull up the average.
Not necessarily.

Median salary is 72K. The outliers tend to be the med school doctors, the rock star scientists in their field, and the b-school and law school teachers. My husband, with a Ph.D. makes less than 45K for a full teaching load. Plus the adjuncts frequently are skating the line of not making it. We don't value teaching at any level.
