If you add in all the additional dollars it is a 14% increase. Teachers get a .5% increase. I am sure this will make the levy much easier to pass. She would want us to remember that it is for the children...Oh yea and the teachers need to be careful that the public doesn't overhear us talking about anything that isn't positive.

"...which has 8,000 students, 6,000 employees and a $600 million annual budget." ---- Please tell me there's a typo there. That would only be 1.3 students per employee and a cost of $75,000 per student.

Well that's too bad. How much more will the arts and other important electives suffer under her short-sighted leadership?

$193,000 a year and she is concerned about how to manage the money. I am sure she doesn't consider her salary part of the problem. I don't care who you are or what you do you do not deserve this type of money especially when it is tax dollars paying it.

Maybe we should all be glad she stayed and didn't move 20 miles away again and cost us another loss. If she were not a minority, there would not be these bizarre perks. We need diversity (colors, ages, abilities) but we must address what it is costing us in unfair perks and payouts and write the contracts (or don't write them to protect the public too).

The good news is they did not hire a consultant to make this decision! That would of cost more for there service and of course she probably would received a larger increase. Because we all know who greases who!

So lets pay her a ton of money and praise her efforts, but slam the teachers for doing a poor job and for being in a union that sticks up for their members!

You must be kidding! Money Money Money and it's still not enough. Where is the accountability in the public school system?
