When 13 people are vying for 1 job, and that job is being funded by taxpayers....then the pay needs to be lowered. In the private sector it works like that. But then again, the private sector cannot afford to spend money it doesn't have.

"Chief", not "chef". Man, I hope you were being sarcastic.

Thirteen people have applied to be the next superintendent of the New Albany-Plain school district. > Ever wonder why so many want to be superintendent? Well, damm good money, damm good retirement, then after retireing at 55, they can become double-dippers and collect two salaries! These 13 are actually pretty smart, they have realized what a sweet opportunity this is!

It should be damn good money and retirement benefits for what they have to do. Other CEO's receive this damn good money and benefits- why shouldn't school superintendents? Your post is nothing more than envy and jealousy- the same policies that Obama continues to espouse and taking the country down with them.

And you are about an ignorant fool, and a damm big one at that! I am not envious or jealous, I just know exactly how the system works, and would bet that you know nothing but how to run your ignorant mouth!

Or maybe s/he did mean "Chef" to go with the "Lunch Lady"

Digression: At one school in which I worked, the "lunch ladies" did all the prep work, but the "lunch men" collected and handled all the money. I was never sure why it was like that.(This was only two years ago)

And exactly how many years have you spent either teaching or being a school administrator to be such an expert on the subject?

A field of thirteen isn't necessarily vast, a lot depends on the quality of the applicants. And a position like Superintendent doesn't typically include a posted salary--there's generally some dickering where the Board tries to figure out the lowest possible figure that can actually pry the candidate away from where they are now.

Occasionally a candidate will use a job offer as a bargaining chip to get a raise in their current position.

Fair enough, you raise some good points. I guess I'm trying to say "come on school boards, all school boards, don't just throw around money like it grows on trees". All too often, I think the people who negotiate on behalf of the taxpayers are far too easy with the person receiving the taxpayer money. Easy to spend when it's not your own personal $ paying it.

If you've been in education for over 30 years, and haven't figured out that teachers have the same options of retiring and being re-hired, WOW! Let me guess, you are one of those wannabe teachers who have all the answers for what administrators should or should not be doing. And your jealousy and envy comes out loud and clear in your post.

The person they select won't be on this list. The newspapers get it wrong so often. They have a fancy company doing the search who will sneak in somebody later. If the person selected is on this list i'll be startled.
