The Reporter Editorial: Get real about school superintendent raises

Everyone knows that California’s public schools are in financial trouble. Between outright cuts and being forced to exist on IOUs from the state Legislature, a record number of districts — including four of Solano County’s six — are on a state watch list because they aren’t sure they can remain solvent during the next three years.

In many districts, programs have been cut, furlough days have been instituted and teachers and staff members have seen reduced benefits, if not smaller paychecks.

And yet, in too many of those same school districts, the pay for superintendents has been rising, according to a California Watch report this week from the nonpartisan Center for Investigative Reporting.
