RSD salaries make senator sick

State Senator Ben Nevers is sick to his stomach because so many high-ranking education officials in Louisiana make over $100,000 per year, according to this article by Advocate reporter Will Sentell.

Nevers launched a tirade at State Superintendent of Education Paul Pastorek after learning that 38 of the superintendent's employees make such grand salaries. Half of the high paid administrators work in the Recovery School District.

Pastorek trotted out the old bromide about having to pay that much to attract the best people for the job. It would be nice if that theory could be applied to all the teachers in every school in the state.
