At several recent speaking engagements, Jeffco Schools board president Ron Mitchell said his main contention regarding America's economic and social justice problems is the obscene difference between the pay of the executive and the worker. Does everyone recall candidate Bernie Sanders becoming apoplectic over this situation?
The advertised base salary for a new Jeffco superintendent is $300,000. Jeffco teacher salaries range from $38,000 to $77,837, as reported by Glassdoor, Inc., an major employment research organization.
The board, with its infinite wisdom, feels that the salary offer is competitive, and a 6-digit gap is evil. So wouldn't consistency call for a teacher pay scale starting higher than $200,000.
Where's the common sense in wasting big taxpayer bucks to search for a replacement for Dan McMinimee, an ideal superintendent, who we were lucky to have, at $220,000?
