These two figures provide some updated context to an earlier post on Arbitrary Pay Limits for NJ Administrators. The bombastic rhetoric on this topic refuses to die down. So, here are a few more figures to put NJ public school district administrator salaries into context. Note that these two figures compare THE TOP 20 SUPERINTENDENT SALARIES to salaries of a) the majority of private independent school headmasters statewide, and b) the average of a large number of NJ Hospital administrators (non-physician chief executives). Just a little more fodder for the conversation.
