Taxes & CPS

Jim Tobin, President of Chicago-based Taxpayers United of America, an organization that advocates for tax relief and responsible use of tax payer dollars, said the average teacher pay in CPS is $76,000, not including employee benefits or pensions.

“That’s $76,000 for nine months’ employment in a system that isn’t even mediocre. This is one of the lowest-performing school districts in the country,” Tobin said. “And they want a 29-percent pay raise. It just boggles the mind. These salaries are out of the world.”
