How Much Does Your School Superintendent Make?
Ever hear the term, you should never tell your co-worker what you make? Well, I'm here to say, the superintendent is not my co-worker, so I will not bite my tongue.
Now, this is a directory for all the public school districts in the state. It is an estimation of what the current superintendent's contract is. This information is collected by The Mackinac Center.
Heads up, just because it is in the directory, doesn't make it true.
I'd also like to drop a note before we begin our journey into the pockets of our children's superintendents. This is not supposed to be something to call out or diminish what each school superintendent does for their community by what they earn. This is not the twentieth century where we are in different social classes where one is better than the other. It's merely an information source.
