Evanston's Megabucks Unionized Teachers

(Editor's Note: The list of names and salaries was updated on 10/23/12 to reflect the latest available 2011 salary data. Readers of the article with the 2010 list will note that they all got hefty little pay hikes, despite the bad economy.)

Evanston, Illinois is one of the most wildly liberal "progressive" municipalities on the face of the American landscape. It voted overwhelmingly for Barack Obama. It has no Republican presence to speak of.

It has a political context that is dominated by the teachers' unions and other public employees unions.

It is culturally a hotbed of oddball organic food enthusiasts and wealthy trust-fund lefties who live in inherited multi-million dollar homes.

It has a sizeable black population, which has gained such a level of Obamaite political clout that it has compelled its School board to jettison "honors programs" in English, Humanities and Science, because not enough Blacks and Hispanics could make the cut from the nationally standardized tests.

Only Whites and Asians were making the grade.

It has 114 unionized teachers hauling down $100,000 a year or more -- up from 85 last year. If this is an era of national economic austerity, you'd never know it if you were a unionized Evanston teacher. And 2 of them are gaming the system for more than $200,000 a year.

These teachers are more than 95% Democrat liberal in voting behavior. They sneer at the mere peasants who toil to pay their gold-plated salaries.

Upon retirement they will pull down 80 to 85% of their last paycheck -- with full medical benefits -- for as long as they live.

They are the new elite. The new aristocrats. Or in the parlance of their Soviet philosophic blood-brothers -- the new privileged apparatchicks.

But Evanston is going broke.

Its School districts are going broke.

Its mayor, an aging, 60s-era leftist Democrat feminist by the name of Elizabeth B. Tisdahl recently had to concede, "I feel bad when telling these new police and fire recruits that we will be able to pay them these promised benefits, because we probably will not."

Here are the latest available salaries of the Evanston Township unionized teachers (these are the ones who are always lamenting "we need more money for education.")

Funny, if 2 of them should marry, they would meet Jan Schakowsky's, Nancy Pelosi's and Barack Hussein Obama's criteria for being amongst "the most wealthy Americans," who should be taxed to the hilt.

Here are the Evanston High School Teachers' salaries, just updated on 3/1/11 to reflect 2010 salaries. Fatcats pulling down $100k + are in bold, the ultra-elite $200k + are in bold and italics. ---

These figures are culled from the IL State Teachers Retirement Fund annual reports, by way of the Family Taxpayers Foundation which was compelled to file suit so that this information would be made transparent for the taxpaying public to see.
