North Carolina School System Superintendent Says No Thanks To $7,500 Dollar Raise

The chief of a North Carolina school system says he doesn't want a $7,500 raise that is called for in his contract.

The News & Record of Greensboro reports that Guilford County school superintendent Maurice Green told the school board that giving him the 3 percent raise during the poor economy would create a hardship for the school system.

Green's salary is $250,000 and his contract calls for a raise in
July. The school board unanimously approved Green's request.

Guilford County faces a potential $8 million sales tax revenue
shortfall and the state, which also funds local schools, is facing
a $2.2 billion revenue deficit.
