Wow. This is incredible.
Mr. James H. Hunderfund wins big with over 315k per year pension from the Commack Union Free School District. The school boards responsible for the approval of these ridiculous benefits should be voted out and sued. Reasonableness must be part of the negotiation and contract process.

Here is another attempt to push down the struggling…I used Pell Grants and went on to earn 2 MS degrees and have never been on welfare. He’s a fool. The GOP are fools. Class war at its worst.
Demand for quality school superintendents fuels high salaries | The Journal News | lohud.com.
High taxes often mean excellent schools and high scores and success. Private K-12 schools’ tuition is 25k up. Adequately funded public schools are a deal.

Syosset school superintendent gets $500,000 pay package – NYPOST.com.
Base salary is 386k. At least the schools have excellent scores. It pays to work in an affluent town (That does not explain why Ossining, NY’s Superintendent earns his base). If the town does not want to pay her this salary then the town/district should not have signed the contract. Sure, complain after the fact but the town/district is responsible for allowing this salary/benefit to occur.

These union rules should be changed because nobody should be able to hold a job just because they got thru the door first. In the private sector, seniority does not matter-you are out if you don’t perform (or if you are and older white man)….
Daily Kos: Are US Workers Headed Toward Sweatshop Labor Wages?.
My mother worked in a factory and was represented by the International Ladies’ Garment Workers’ Union (ILGWU). Our life would have been financially worse without that union’s representation. Business owners’ greed is worse now because egomaniacal greed has crept deeper into the GOP and The U.S. Chamber of Commerce (a joke). Corporate Welfare is a sin and is supported by the GOP.
Teachers cannot be comared to the average US worker because teachers have earned degrees and most US workers have not bothered to improve themselves. However, these outspoken ‘taxpayers’ cry that they have been short-changed: Maybe if these idiotic selfish Tea Partyish people worked harder they just might be able to earn more.
Governor Cuomo to Propose School Superintendent Salary Cap | Governor Andrew M. Cuomo.
This will damage our schools. There is no way that NY public school districts could attract the best administrators with this incredibly low threshold. The Superintendent in my public school district rightly earns over 300k and our district has one of the highest average teacher compensation levels ($100k) and the highest student scores, Ivy League college admission rates, graduation rates, and overall success.
