This Irritates Me

Can anyone explain to me how my school district's superintendet can get his duties narrowed down to just handling PR and fund raising yet still get the same large 6 figure income? What about the fact that he graciously turned down his raise this year but went ahead and accepted the $17,000 student achievement award. Then he promoted two of his assistant superintendents and the one got a 10% raise and now makes about $143,000 and the other got a 8-9% raise. Yet, and here's the kicker, the teachers are on their second year of no contract and the superintendent refuses to give us the 3% cost of living raise we're asking for and we're going to lose about 450 teachers in the district (first through 4th or 5th year teachers) and we're closing at least 6 buildings. Can someone explain this to me? Am I missing something? How does this make sense?????
