Move to New York Means Big Pay Hike
When Richard R. Green assumes the chancellorship of the New York City public schools in March, his salary will soar by 70 percent.
The pay hike will make him the highest-paid school administrator in the country.
As Schools Chancellor of the 940,000-student New York City system, Mr. Green will earn $150,000 a year--$63,000 more than he currently makes as superintendent of the Minneapolis public schools and $25,000 more than Nathan Quinones, the previous New York chief.
But that is not all. Mr. Green will also receive a $25,000 annual housing allowance, and a $10,000 annual entertainment allowance provided by the business community.
Leonard Britton, superintendent of the 590,000-student Los Angeles school system, is currently the highest-paid school administrator in the country, earning an annual salary of $141,080.--br
