Re "Schools chief calling it quits" (Page A1, Oct. 17): The Sacramento City Unified School District will have to hire a new superintendent, and the outgoing one is paid $245,000 a year. So who wants to bet the new one will not get a raise?
This is how it will go: The district will hire a headhunting consultant, pick a replacement, give him or her a pay raise and justify it by saying we have to keep competitive. The new superintendent will then make more than any non-doctor state employee including the governor. Now who is overpaid? Then ask teachers how much they have to pay out of pocket to supply their classroom?
