Phila school administrators' salaries, compared to other cities

IOM columnist Phil Goldsmith takes on the school district today, arguing that the administration there is "tone-deaf" to the fiscal realities of this city. Here's a little chart comparing the compensation of top employees at the Philadelphia School District to those at some other districts; as you can see, Philadelphia administrators are making out pretty well in comparison (the data here are mostly from the districts themselves; the Chicago numbers are from the Chicago Reader, which got them from the Chicago Public Schools).

About this blog
Every year, city government spends slightly more than $4 billion. Where does all that money come from? More importantly, where does it go? Are we getting the most bang for our tax buck? “It's Our Money” is a joint project between Philadelphia Daily News and WHYY, funded by the William Penn Foundation, designed to answer these questions.
