I saw this. It is ridiculous! It is more ridiculous that this board really thought this was reasonable . They all need to get fired.

Crooks and thugs are running our public schools. At least they are in California.

This is not isolated. Our education system is broke. Privatize now and make competition happen. Voucher it up and take the cronies down.

: Betraying the Public Trust should be grounds for the death penalty (and I'm not a big death penalty advocate)

Sadly, this kind of theft is being played out and payed out throughout the USA.

This is what happens when you keep shoveling money into a broken system.

He should have been put under citizens arrest for stealing from the public.

He and the board should all be arrested, stripped of everything they own because its likely linked to their corruption.

I'm astounded. This is the City Of Bell all over again. I want this asshole and the people on the board that allowed this to happen, prosecuted. Check the other city officials as well, including the police chief. I'm reminded of Bell's police chief "Randy" who is a piece of shit.

Look at what they pay and think they have to for Fulton county school s in Atlanta. And the results is crap. The mayor argues they have to pay more to get better talent. I believe that kind of money only brings out more corruption and greed. People don't get into public education to get rich. And money should not be the only reward.

sadly this crime is not only common but often the people who commit such acts are able to settle out of court, admit no wrongdoing but pay a fine, and then move on to another district for another pay off.

more money than the president... yeah it can be fixed in the future but the fact that it happened and was legal is still disturbing.

That sounds like an unhealthy profit from a fund intended to educate children. Like stealing candy from a baby... ;(

Here's an idea: Perhaps taxpayer funds are being supplemented by a nonprofit behind the scenes-- a nonprofit funded by a corporation. Check it out. Investigate.

The entire school board should be recalled, and face criminal charges.

Daniel Payne

I think it's a fair salary. There is a two way street here, offer and acceptance. The citizens can run for school board and make these decisions. Instead they ignore it, complain when it gets "bad", then do nothing to fix it. If you don't like it, run for the office.

The picture and faces of real crony capitalism. So have you got a 2% loan after coming out of a bankruptcy? Like the one guy said, this is just criminal.
