Markus on the Kojo Show: D.C. Charters Have Some Of The Highest Salaries For Administrators. So Why Are Their Teachers Making So Little?

February 5, 2019

But, at the District’s charter schools, the average salary is about sixteen thousand dollars less.

So, what is causing this disparity? And why are charter administrators pulling in some of the highest school salaries in Washington?
