Public schools breaking the backs of taxpayers
Reader comment on: Peter Beinart's CUNY Pay
Submitted by steve m. (United States), May 18, 2010 18:32
Up in Eastchester, Westchester, where I live, we have public school teachers who earn up to $160,000 annually and administrators who earn nearly double that. The superintendent tells us we are doing well because she convinced the teacher's union to forgo half their annual raise - in exchange for an agreement of no more negotiations for two years.
70% of the school budget is salaries and associated payments. This is why there's a strong movement to reject the budget in tonight's vote.
