Average per child comparative costs in New Jersey K-12 districts rose to $13,601 during the 2008-09 school year, as reported by NJ.COM

And in Newark, NJ the cost is closer to $24,000 per student per year.

Just some simple math here:
$13,000 per student times(x) 30 students per class
equals $390,000 per classroom. If they pay the teacher $90,000, that still leaves $300,000 per classroom. Now I know they don't spend that much on "books and supplies". Do you?

Now multiply that by how many classrooms in a school, multiplied by how many schools in a district. WHERE IS ALL THAT MONEY GOING?

And they stand up straight-faced and tell us that the superindendents are doing such a "great" job as custodians of our tax dollars.

In Newark, it is closer to $24,000 per pupil; that's $720,000 per classroom (-)minus teacher salary ($90,000) leaves $630,000. Please show us how it takes $630,000 to run ONE CLASSROOM. Multiply that by how many classrooms in a school. Multiply that by the 74 schools in Newark.


We wouldn't want any of these superintendents managing one of our businesses. Why aren't they in JAIL???

Gov. Christie is 1000% correct the superintendents are OVERPAID. Edison just gave O`Malley $210,000 to leave Matawan , that`s a $40,000 raise ! STOP THE INSANITY.
