I asked earlier today what the salaries were for the corporate "reformers" - you know, the ones who want to radically change teacher compensation systems.
In the comments, Ken pointed me toward guidestar.org. It's a site where you can get IRS forms from a wide variety of non-profits (you have to remember folks: I'm just an amateur, and I'm learning as I go. So any time any of you can send me in the right direction, I really appreciate it - thanks, Ken!).
Part of IRS reporting includes compensation for top officers. But you can only get this data if the organization has been around long enough to have filed a 990. Michelle Rhee's Students First and Derrell Bradford's B4K haven't had to file yet, so we don't know what they make. However...
The average yearly teacher salary is around $55,000. So, if we use my previous list, we can figure out how much a corporate "reformer" makes relative to the average teacher:
Joel Klein's pulling down at least $2 million - probably a lot more.
Gosh, I wonder why none of these people are in the classroom today?
ADDING: Hey, New Jersey teachers: remember when Chris Christie told you if you really cared about the kids you'd take a pay freeze? Because you weren't part of the "shared sacrifice"? But we couldn't afford to keep the millionaires tax?
Look up at my chart again, and remember he said that when 2013 rolls around.
