The number of six-figure salary earners in the Austin school district has jumped 63 percent in the past five years, at a time when the district has had to tighten its belt and cut jobs, an analysis by the American-Statesman has found.This is yet another example of piss-poor stewardship of the people's money in today's education bureaucracy. Bureaucracy crowds out money that could go to students. Keep these bureaucrats in mind when AISD cries poverty to the legislature over the next few months.
Seventy of the district’s 11,973 employees make more than $100,000. That’s up from 56 in 2011-12. In the 2007-08 school year, 43 of the district’s 11,571 employees earned at least that amount.
