I just read your list of possible school superintendents.

It's frightening that so many assistant superintendents from much wealthier counties than Knox (Orange Co, FL, home of Walt Disney World; Boston, MA; Falls Church, VA; Fulton Co., GA; and Philadelphia, PA) have applied for the job.

I believe that when the school board increased the superintendent's salary to a quarter of a million dollars, they said it would be comparable to what districts similar to Knox Co. are paying.

Since when is Knox Co. similar to Fulton Co., Orange Co., Boston, and Philadelphia ? Plus, if the superintendent makes that much money, it won't be long until his/her subordinates will be given pay increases.

Those supporting this pay increase on the school board seriously misled the citizens of Knox Co., and the citizens are going to wind up paying for it.
