Alberta’s Education Minister says superintendent salaries are too high


Alberta’s Education Minister, David Eggin, says measures need to be taken with Alberta’s overly high superintendent wage.

A report showed base salaries for Alberta school superintendents rose by 10 percent between 2015 and 2016, while pay for teachers remained flat.

In Calgary, the Chief Superintendent of the Public System receives a base salary of 295,000 dollars a year.

Eggin hasn’t specified what measures will be taken, but hasn’t ruled out a salary cap.
