TV5 did a bit of research and learned some interesting facts about education around the country.
It's projected that 56 million students will be enrolled in the nation's elementary and high schools this fall.
There are 7.2 million working teachers in the U.S., from pre-kindergarten to college.
The average annual salary for a public school teacher is $50,758.
There are 14.2 million computers available for classroom use throughout the nation's elementary and secondary schools. That's one computer for every four students.
