[Milwaukee, Wisconsin] MacIver News Service – For the first time in history, the average annual compensation for a teacher in the Milwaukee Public School system will exceed $100,000.


That staggering figure was revealed last night at a meeting of the MPS School Board.


The average salary for an MPS teacher is $56,500. When fringe benefits are factored in, the annual compensation will be $100,005 in 2011.


MacIver’s Bill Osmulski has more in this video report.

    I guess those unions know how to squeeze the taxpayers for a job that is only 9 months, with paid holidays etc.

    Wow!

    Maybe I should teach English in Wisconsin, as I actually do my job. apx $700 a month is about middle class here in China so I'm not complaining. In fact, it's the first time I've lived a middle class income life since striking out on my own at the ripe old age of "I-know-more-than-everyone-else" 17.

    That's ridiculous. Really. I bet more than half of them can't even hold a candle to my work ethic.

    That would be OK, if the students were all on the NHS and graduating with honors. With no competiton, many teachers just do their duty, or job. Ho hum - get through the day. Granted, there are some very talented teachers out there and they deserve decent compensation. A merit system would be appropriate, provided the teachers don't do as they did in Atlanta.

    I don't know what they did in Atlanta..but I'll tell you what happened in Savannah. My granddaughters were living on Hunter Army Air Field and were bussed off to a public school. The school was in the heart of the ghetto. Armed police on duty at the school. Now one of the teachers actually spoke to the students in Ebonomics! A White teacher, talkin' ghetto trash! He be kickin it wid da homies. One teacher, waiting for her retirement, use to fall asleep in class! There are all kinds of stories like that...not to mention how they were pushing obama to the kids!

    That is more sad, than it is funny. The Atlanta Public School System (APS) teachers changed test scores to allow kids to score better than they were capable. I know of one APS teacher, who taught her kids how to steal. Not even out of elementary school and they all had criminal records. She said they were stupid .... to get caught. Oh, yes, she is still teaching.

    Government workers are over paid and underworked. In my opinion, as an academic student and a student of life, I have found that most educators are educated way beyond their intelligence. Demonic Rat Hunter said it best, their pay should be bassed on merit and not longevity. educated intelligence demonic rat hunter pay bassed merit longevity dumb teacher

    What exactly are these teachers paid for? I know, some are good, but when it comes down to it, they are teaching for the government, not "We the People". Yet, where is their pay and all the comensation coming from? Yep, "We the People". So, as far as I'm concerned, they are just pressing the tax payers for more, not the government. Between them, the bailouts, the stimulus and whatever else the government thinks it can squeeze from a turnip, "We the People" are screwed.

    it is true, they are not dedicated or else they wouldnt be there. They and their unions are about greed. They have become accustomed to living better than most of us but they still wish for US to sacrifice so that they may continue to live better.

    It isn't fair to factor in the fringe benefits unless these are in the form of taxable compensation. Public systems must offer benefits to be competitive with the private sector jobs. But, if the actual salaries were 100K, indeed that would be excessive.

    Then the government should include fringe benfits taxable income. The government deems it necessary to now include your payments for health care as taxable income.

    it is appropriate to consider exactly what is costs to employ them. Those benefits have costs

    It is not only the salary and huge benefits but all public workers become multi-millionaires at retirement through their fraudulent pension system...we have a $6.7 Trillion massively bloated operation in the public sector - federal. state and local - includes education, police, fire, public works, politicians, etc... there is a need for a $2 Trillion cut and reform on the pension side saving another $1.5 Trillion so all the present budget cutting and hysterics are nothing but a ploy around the edges until you hear the politicians cutting their compensation and all public sector compensation ...you have not resolved the American economic cancer...
