|GSCS In the News--Superintendents' Salary Cap--1-26-18|
Time to Scrap the Superintendent Salary Cap? In what could be the first step of many to roll back Gov. Chris Christie's education legacy, the state Senate has released a bill that eliminates Christie's controversial cap on salaries for school superintendents.
Betsy Ginsburg, executive director of the Garden State Coalition of Schools, an advocacy organization representing parents, said that the caps have had "minimal cost effectiveness." She said that GSCS members who have conducted superintendent searches in the past five years say "the pool is smaller, the pool is overall less qualified and many of the candidates that we would have liked to talk to, to provide the kind of visionary leadership that we need to move forward in this state have left and that has limited our options." http://www.njspotlight.com/stories/18/01/25/time-to-scrap-the-superintendent-salary-cap/
