What Does the Average Milwaukee School Teacher Make?

Quite a lot:

For the first time in history, the average annual compensation for a teacher in the Milwaukee Public School system will exceed $100,000.

That staggering figure was revealed last night at a meeting of the MPS School Board.

The average salary for an MPS teacher is $56,500. When fringe benefits are factored in, the annual compensation will be $100,005 in 2011…

And that was posted on March 3, 2010 – and thus wasn’t generated just for this current controversy.

Its not like they are starving out there – and its not like Governor Walker is cutting their pay and benefits to the bone. Just a little adjustment, given that the State is broke…and they go on a rampage.
