School superintendent gives up $800k in pay

As referred to in several earlier posts:

"... the man who started his career as a high school civics teacher, who has made anti-bullying his mission, hopes his act of generosity will help restore faith in the government he once taught students to respect".


- We could sure use some restoration of faith in government here in Pittsburgh.

In Pittsburgh we had almost exactly the opposite occur.

A year before he leaves Mr. Roosevelt has the Board extend his contract again, beefs up a life insurance provision that obligates future Boards and then secures private foundation money to absorb the tax consequence of the life insurance provision.

All the while continuing to look for employment elsewhere...

And even so, the Post-Gazette writes laudatory editorials about his years here and his "accomplishments" and the PPS and the PFT host a love fest "going away" dinner for the guy, too.

Vet, this is just utter, arrogant corruption right before your very eyes.

And no one cares.

No one says a thing about it.

These people are vultures

No one cares as long as taxes are not raised, who cares if they are wasted

What MR did was a crime, Lane will do the same because no one cares
