In 1993, a teacher with 11 years of experience earned 33,730 dollars and the superintendent earned no more than 70,000 dollars. Twenty-one years later, a teacher with 11 years of experience earns 48,500 dollars an increase of 14,770 while the last superintendent earned around 150,000 dollars and an increase of about 80,000. The principals earn around 74,000 which is about 20,000 dollars more than the highest paid teacher. Then shouldn't the superintendent earn about 20,000 more than the highest paid principal and not double the amount. The teacher is expected to teach 18+ students on his/her own. But before he/she can teach, lesson plans must be written, materials must be gathered, assessment instrument found or made for each concept taught. Then he/she must grade assignments and prepare and turn in data reports, etc.... Now, the superintendent has an army helping him/her. There is the superintendent assistant (should be secretary) earning more than a certified teacher, financial officer, business manager, human resources director, curriculum director, special education director, transportation coordinator, food services director, technology director, payroll something (I could find the title), receptionists, etc... Now most of these directors have secretaries and of those secretaries some are chief secretaries. If you were to visit the main office, you would be amazed at the number of employees working at the main office. If any positions are cut, the cuts are in teaching positions. Why? Well, there are just too many teachers.
