Comment by VonMisesJr in American Thinker:

“In Blue States Inner-City Districts, there are as many Administrators as Teachers. There is a myriad of levels of Educators and Administrators earning over $100K and Teachers after 30 years earn about $100K and can retire with half-pay and Cadillac Health care for life. If you calculate the Net Present Value of the Wages, Pensions and present and future Health Care for a 30 year teacher, it approaches $200K per year. Salary is $100K ranges, future Pension $50K and $30K for current and retirement Health Care Plan. This is a good deal for putting glue and sparkles on paper or chanting the A,B,C’s…..of course there are great math and science teachers, but even these people are not worth $200K compensation in their final years.”
