|A full 219 of the teachers and administrators at New Trier |
pull down more than 6 figures for their 9 month gigs
Posted below are the 2012 salaries of teachers and administrators from the New Trier Township High School System.
These salaries reflect the 3.5% pay hike that the IEA teachers union squeezed from the taxpayers in August 2011-- despite the fact that the average American worker -- if he has a job at all -- got a lessor pay raise on average.
The IEA is again saturating the Chicago airwaves with feel-good ads encouraging a "living wage" for teachers and a decent pension for their retirement years.
Judge for yourself if these salaries are living wages or outright opulent pay grabs. Keep in mind that the average SAT score for university School of Education students is 964, vastly lower than those of the general student population -- making teachers the poorest educated of all professionals.
Further consider that the powerful teachers unions have used their massive political clout to secure lifetime pensions which are 85% of the average of the teacher's 3 highest salary years. Only 41% of all American workers, the people who pay for these salaries and gold-plated pensions, receive any pension whatever.
The 2012 New Trier High School's teachers names and salaries posted below were garnered from the Family Taxpayers Foundation Teachers Salary database, which in turn was acquired via a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against the Illinois State Teachers Retirement Fund which was compelled to release the data.
And keep in mind, despite the fact that a full 256 of the New Trier employees are pulling down more than six figures a year for their 9 month gigs (up from 219 last year), these are not even the highest paid in the state, being surpassed by those in the Lake Forest and Niles Township (Skokie, Morton Grove) high school payrolls.
