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.
