P&C Posts School Leaders' Salaries

Today's Post & Courier features a front page story regarding the salaries of area superintendents. The publication also lists the top 5 earners in select counties and asks if those leaders are worth the cost.

I know many of you don't have a subscription to the P&C, so I borrowed (see: stole with plenty of credit) some of the data and posted it below.

You can read the entire article here (assuming you have an online subscription).
