A Top Salary of $52,600 Does Not Average $54,600

The following was tweeted today as a celebration of great policy in the current budget.


And this is the very salary schedule that the budget has in it.


Since the state doesn’t give out local supplements, it seems rather disingenuous for state lawmakers to take credit for that in their “average.”

Plus, that average is bolstered by graduate degree pay of veteran teachers. New teachers will not get that.

And you see how that salary schedule above treats veteran teachers.

Makes one wonder how a high of $52,600 could sustain an average of $54,600.
