Recently the Chicago Tribune published a letter from Paul Easton, an English teacher at New Trier High School District 203. Among other complaints, Mr. Easton bemoans the “pummel(ing)” teachers have been taking at the hands of the Tribune editors.” He also blames “legislative malfeasance” for the current pension fiasco but says nothing about his $117,000 nine-month salary as having anything to do with it. I am curious where in the private sector does Mr. Easton think an English major could make $700 per day plus benefits like retirement at age 54?
