School Consolidation – Increases Teacher Costs?

“when two districts consolidate in Illinois, teachers in the lower-paying district are allowed to switch to the higher pay offered by the other.”

WHY? Who made that rule?

Why not the other way around?

There seems to be a need for state limits on the foolishness of local School Boards. How about a cap of $125,000 per year on superintendent salary and a cap of $100,000 on all other salaries. Is that crazy or something? Let’s put it into the consolidation bill.

Does anyone really believe that such a cap would reduce administrator quality? Or that $100,000 teach jobs would go unfilled? Or even $125,000 superintendent jobs would go unfilled?

How about a more easily effected mechanism of school board member recall?
