I live in Port St. Lucie. I am the Father and Father-in-law of two teachers. This article is an embarrassment to this conservative faithful.
Port St. Lucie Board managment has promoted 13 assoc. superintendants with an avg salary of $85K. The average front line teacher is paid $36K. They have had no effective raises (there was a 3% last year but it went to increased benefit contributions) in three years.
Teachers in this district have a $50. annually allowance for classroom supplies. (Really? but managment all had increases?)
The County still permits DROP programs (were the Superintendant received his lump sum retirement AND still kept working, instead of making room for a younger and hopefully cheaper replacement). Facts first?
