In City Schools, 44 Employees Earn More than Governor

BALTIMORE (WBFF) - Can you put a price on a good teacher, principal or school superintendent? Baltimore City Schools has, to the tune of six-figure salaries.

Baltimore City Schools CEO Sonja Santelises oversees 82,000 students and a $1.3 billion budget. It may not surprise you, that at $317,000, she was the District’s highest paid employee last year. But what Project Baltimore found in a 2017 City Schools employee salary database may surprise you.

“I would encourage you to ask parents what they think the worth is of a great teacher or a school leader,” says Jeremy Grant-Skinner, Chief Human Capital Officer for Baltimore City Schools.

The database, obtained through a public records request, includes all 9,400 full-time school employees. When we sorted through the data, a few things jumped out at us. In a city where the average household earns $44,000 a year, we found 767 employees who made at least $100,000 last year.

It has always been like this. Take Salisbury, why would a college president be paid more? Runs a city block while a governor runs a state with every college block within the state.

In Baltimore, those making more than the Gov should return their pay. No excuse to poor education!

You only need to be popular, not smart, to become governor.
