New York City Charter School Will Pay Six-Figure Salaries

Hosted by

What can an elementary school principal buy with $125,000? Dream jobs for a dream team. Not a basketball franchise or high-tech company, this team is part of a new public charter school in New York, where teachers will earn two and a half times the national average of a teacher's salary. The premise is that higher teacher pay is the key to improving schools. Elissa Gootman has written about the school for the New York Times.
