More on spare a teacher a dime

A couple of nice letters in the Sunday Gazette-Mail remark on Debra Wolf’s commentary that I blogged on previously. Both opine that Ms. Wolf should have known what her starting salary was going to be in Hampshire County. August Beyer points out (as I did) that Ms. Wolf chose Hampshire because it was close to her Maryland home, not because of the great salary (which is based on tax collections that Ms. Wolf does not contribute to). “In a county with 16 percent of the residents living below the poverty level and with an average wage per job (in 2003) of $22,791, $28,000 seems to be in line with the economy.”

Nice point!
