School Superintendents Among Best Paid Government Employees in Country

Part of the reason why property taxes kept going up even after the housing bubble popped


The housing market collapsed in 2008—but property tax bills didn't. In fact, property taxes continued to rise in many parts of the country by 40% or more.

Why? One big reason: Increasing school costs, including growing pay packages for school superintendents now at record levels, putting a strain on taxpayers and school budgets.
