Bemused from Oak Park  

Posted: December 2nd, 2011 11:10 AM

The average teacher salary at OPFR has gone up from $80,977 in 2008 to $97,406 to 2011. How many of us tax payers have gotten a 20% raise since the beginning of the economic downturn? The cartoon should be amended to show the tax payers crushed by the admin and teachers union while they squabble over whether they help themselves to a 15% or 20% raise.
