Superintendent Overpaid?

Isn’t this interesting? The Jamestown Board of Education has hired a new superintendent to oversee the education of 5,100 students within nine schools with a declining enrollment. The population for Jamestown is about 30,000, and the median income (2009) is $31,085.00 for a Jamestown household.

In comparison, the Millcreek school district near Erie Pa. has also just hired a new superintendent to oversee the education of 7,464 student within 12 schools. The population for Millcreek is about 53,515. The median income (2000) is $45,019.00 for a Millcreek household.

Jamestown’s superintendent’s salary is $165,000.00 and the Millcreek’s superintendent’s is $160,000.00. Isn’t this interesting??
