Markus on the Kojo Show: D.C. Charters Have Some Of The Highest Salaries For Administrators. So Why


D.C. has gained national recognition for its above-average teaching salaries. From 2016-2017, the average D.C. public school teacher earned just over $76,400.

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?
