According to Jonathan Friedman’s article, Measure S will generate $6.2 million, enough to bring back 66 teachers. This pencils out to a whopping $94,000 per teacher. The teachers had a 12 percent pay raise in February 2000, and now the Santa Monica Mirror and the Ocean Park Gazette tell us that the Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District’s teacher salaries are 19 percent above the county average and that Classified salaries are 34 percent above the county average. Combine this extravagance with the $125 million in long term debt that the district has run up with their “renovations” and it’s no wonder that the district’s Financial Oversight Committee’s chair is Rich. Let SMMUSD get its Financial Oversight act together and not hit property owners up with a burdensome property tax like Measure Scam.
