Dear Linda,

You asked:
<<Please could you e-mail me any information to help me structure a
compensation
schedule that reflects the fair market value of such positions as well as the
unique nature of our school.>>

Why would the "fair market value" of your art positions be different than for
any other teaching position at your school? I am an art teacher in a public
school. My compensation is contractually negotiated and guaranteed to be
exactly what every other teacher's salary is, differentiated only by years of
service and levels of professional development.

Linda, do you pay your math and english teachers differently based on the
subject matter they teach? Why art teachers? Your question is exactly what
makes me concerned about charter schools.
