Big pensioners not likely to be teachers

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionFor the purposes of clarity, your Feb. 18 article on school employee benefits should have stated that most, if not all, of the persons in your “six-figure pension club” are retired superintendents or other high-level administrators.I know several of them from my years as president of the Saratoga County School Boards Association. To simply refer to them as “educators” can lead some people to conclude that they are typical classroom teacher pensioners. The listed pensions are going to a relatively small number of top-of-the-line employees who worked year-round and received both higher salaries and enhanced benefits. You really should also include the fact that some long-retired teachers are “living” on extremely low pensions as well. Bill ShawBallstonMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?Police: Schenectady woman tried to take car in Clifton Park hours after arrest, release in prior the…EDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusEDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristslast_img read more
