The N&R reports Guilford County teachers will receive a 1.2 percent raise, while WFDD’s Steve Biddle (somehow this isn’t how I pictured what he looked like) reported this morning that Superintendent Mo Green once again declined a raise, keeping his salary at $250,000.
Which is exactly the threshold of President Obama’s campaign strategy to demonize the wealthy. Perhaps Green should volunteer for a pay cut –perhaps $1— to get him just under that threshold.
Superintendents’ salaries are all over the place –mind you Guilford County is —geographically speaking — a big school district — with a diverse student population. But it’s still Guilford County, not New Jersey or California —where superintendents’ salaries don’t appear to run much higher, if at all.
According to this source— Green’s salary is much higher than the average superintendent’s salary. But still —does he deserve to be called by the president, good government employee that he is?
