Teacher compensation database undercuts CTA claims
The Transparency California group’s database of school district compensation undercuts teacher unions’ claims that teacher pay scales are ungenerous and capped at unfairly low levels.
When very generous health benefits and good pension benefits are factored in, that doesn’t look to be true in the state’s second largest county. Here are some of the findings about San Diego County, as reported by the U-T:
More than 7,500 school district employees in San Diego County received six-figure compensation packages last year, including 4,600 teachers. …
More than 1,300 San Diego Unified teachers also received six-figure compensation packages.
About 570 Sweetwater [Union High School District] teachers received more than $100,000 in compensation.
About 390 Oceanside [Unified] teachers received $100,000 or more, data shows.
The data shows that 359 teachers in the Poway district also received six-figure compensation in 2013.
Negative correlation between $100k employees, district quality?
