What are your thoughts on this? I just saw a post on top 40 salaries in the school system.
What are the current school salaries. Are these people even teachers? Do they teach now in the schools?

Nah, the people drawing the big salaries do not teach. They just hang out at the administration office all day. Sometimes they will have a brain fart and try to impose it on others. For the most part they are harmless except for the huge amount of property tax they drain from property owners in Camden County.

Well, i will try to answer that.......public or charter and what it has to do with $$$.....Just wondering if our public school salaries are being used wisely...or if charter schools might be a better choice.
If the top 40 salary recipients are being paid and don't teach our kids, then why would a charter school be a bad idea. I am not saying they are good or bad. I really have no clue! But it seems to me that the kids and teachers should be getting that money and not people who are to teaching.
I just keep hearing all this and that about how the money will be taken away from our public schools if we have charter schools...but it looks like it would be taken from the employees at the board only. Is that such a bad idea? Why are there so many people at the board who are being paid high salaries but don't teach our kids? How many employees are at the board? Do you know? I don't. But I bet that many more teachers to work IN THE schools could be hired.
Could we get more for our money if we do away with the majority of the people at the board? Should they be located or divided among all the schools anyway to see what goes on day to day?

So, what are your thoughts on charter vs public schools?

Because the dumb a$$es in charge always cut the classroom fist to balance the budget...but until parents get tired of the mismanagement; the creative f**k heads in Atlanta will change the game to suit their campaign contributions.
