Salary's Too High

August 14, 1993

Our state superintendent of public instruction earns $102,000. Our state legislators take home $52,500. Gov. Pete Wilson was making $120,000 but has voluntarily taken a 5% cut because of the economic crisis in California.

But the Ventura County Board of Education just voted 4 to 1 to give our newly appointed county superintendent of schools the same $112,466 annual salary as his predecessor, plus $18,870 a year in benefits (a total of $131,336).

Unfortunately, only one board member (Wendy Larner) had the sense to oppose this reckless extravagance.

It's just another example of the educational bureaucracy and another reason to vote for Parental Choice in Education in November.
