I don't know if this will be a new thread but here goes.

I had a chance to read through the special edition of the Rochester Business Journal today. This is the annual report on schools in Monroe County. Here are some interesting facts:

1. Greece Teachers are #1 in pay. Average: $70,000. Age/Yrs Experience 42/15. Average class size 22 students.

2. Greece ranks #19 out of 27 districts for High School Graduation rates

3. Per pupil spending = $18,791 per child.

4. Regents Dipolmas #15 out of 27 districts

5. Regents English + #22 out of 27 districts

6. Regents Math = #18 out of 27 districts

7. SAT score for Reading = #23 out of 27 districts

8. SAT score Writing = #23 out of 27 districts

9 SAT score Math = #24 out of 27 districts.

So, Greece teachers are the highest paid at $70,000 a year on average EXCLUDING benefits, but the Greece School district is NOT number one in anything else. I would like to hear all the excuses as to why our kids scores are in the toilet. Other school districts spend less on average for Teacher salaries but are getting better results. And some of these districts have similar socio economic conditions as Greece.

By the way............Pittsford comes in second in Teacher salary at $62,000 a year excluding benefits. Guess where their kids rank?
