Fun with numbers (that you use to buy gas, food, gas, clothing, gas, shelter….)
Let me take you for a ride on my monetary mood swing, in which the author tries to alternately amuse you and depress you. Fasten the seat belts, and keep both hands on your calculator at all times.
According to the NEA, average teacher salaries rose 2.4 percent in the last year, to $47,808.
Apparently, there is no word on what above-average teachers earned (smirk), but no matter what, it wasn’t what we deserved (snicker).
For more fun. according to the National Association of Elementary School Principals, the average high school principal earned $86,938 (up 0.9% from 2003-04), the average middle school principal earned $81,514 (up 1.8% from 2003-04), and the average elementary school principal earned $76,144 (up 1.3% from 2003-04).
Average high school assistant principals earned 71,404 (up 1.3% from 2003-04), average middle school APs earned $67,600 (up 1.8% from 2003-04), and average elementary school APs earned $63,140 (up 1.5% from 2003-04).
I have no knowledge of the salary of Assistant Principal Plea Bargain, who repeatedly ignored my requests for help as I single-handedly tried to keep an impending rugby scrum from breaking out (not to mention giving a kid a therapy session instead of consequences when he walked out of my room cursing), but it’s definitely NOT what AP PB is worth, either.
Ahem. Unfortunately, inflation rose 3.1 percent.
Well, now I feel better.
