The SCI (State of New Jersey Commission of Investigation) released a new report today, “Taxpayers Beware, What You Don’t Know Can Cost You”, that takes a look into questionable and hidden compensation for public school administrators. The full report can be found here:
Education and schools are hot topics on this blog, a quick look at just about any active set of comments will show a stream of questions and statements on schools. It’s obvious that education is a top priority for many of us. We’re willing to pay the high taxes typically associated with top school areas. But just where does that money go? This report is a big eye opener. I, for one, had no idea that administrative compensation was so high. While I feel that these people should be fairly compensated for their work, I don’t quite understand the justification for quarter million dollar salaries.
