It appears that the SEA concerns regarding Springboro taxpayers are not "which ones of you are the craziest" but instead, "which ones of you are crazy enough to vote more of your hard earned money for school union employees big pay increases!"<quoted text>
So, you have a masters degree with 10 years teaching experience and you are ok with the beginning salary of apx.$34K? Because no matter what your experience or level of education, that is what they want to start you at for pay. I think you are just as crazy as they are!!
Please go to the Springboro Transparency Project on the schoool website and see for your self the data on pay and benefits.
You can also go to the Ohio Department of Education (ODE) and see the data on Springboro Median Household income over this same period of time.
Look at ODE, you will see that since 2008 the Springboro median household income (1.5 wage earners working 12 months) went up $1,500 (08'-12') in these 4 years. According to ODE the median Springboro Teacher salary went up $5,444 from 08'-12'. You may want to compare this to the data on the Springboro Transparency project for individual information.
