NO SUPERINTENDENT SHOULD BE PAID MORE THAN THE COMPARATIVE RATE OF THE TEACHERS AND OTHER WORKERS
According to reports, 21 counties in West Virginia pay teachers on average more than in Monongalia County.
Meanwhile, only 4 counties pay their superintendent more than in Monongalia County, and due to the superintendent’s recent pay raise only 1 county will be paying its superintendent more.
What justifies the superintendent in Monongalia County making more in comparison to superintendents in other counties than the teachers (and other workers) make in comparison to other counties?
Is the superintendent’s record so very stellar? Hardly.
The question must be asked: Is the superintendent paid so highly to keep teachers’ salaries down?
Is the superintendent paid so highly to keep the public shut out, misinformed, and its will pushed aside?
