Court Rules N.J. Can Curtail School Administrators' Pay
New Jersey education department rules aimed at curtailing excessive compensation for public school administrators are constitutional, a state appeals court ruled last week, rejecting a claim by the New Jersey Association of School Administrators that the 2008 rules were vague and violated equal-protection law.
The state limited perks and retirement benefits after an investigation revealed hidden compensation and lax oversight of contracts. One superintendent had retired with $741,000 in severance and reimbursement for unused sick leave and vacation time.
Gov. Christopher Christie, a Republican, proposed going a step further and capping the salaries of top public school administrators.
