Administration Pays

The biggest perk I've ever gotten as a teacher: summers off. Apparently, I should become an administrator in the Northshore School District of Washington State.
A Seattle Times article details the expensive benefits that over 90 top employees can receive. The most amazing part is that the district is facing the possibility of cutting over 3 million dollars. Seriously.
I'm thankful for my $250 dollar tax credit, but I've been pining for a flat screen television and high performing laptop computer for quite a while.
There is a lot of money in the Northshore School District. The tax base is full of wealthy families, but there needs to be more common sense.

Apparently in Florida the biggest perk to being a teacher is that you get to have steamy relationships with your students. For commentary one this and all the other crazy news stories in public schools, check out http://detentionslip.org.
