McGeehan plans move to cut superintendent salaries

    It’s no secret State Rep. Mike McGeehan has an issue with Arlene Ackerman. Back in December he called for an investigation into the School District of Philadelphia superintendent’s reassignment of a no-bid work contract. Now, he’s after her salary.

    McGeehan, of the 173rd District, told Fox29 he plans to propose a bill that would ensure school superintendents don’t earn more than the governor. Ackerman’s $338,000 annual base salary is more than Gov. Tom Corbett’s and Mayor Michael Nutter’s salaries combined.

    Districts paying their superintendents more than the governor would have their funding cut.
