That’s A Lot of Dough

By a vote of 7-2, the Miami-Dade County Public School Board of Education has officially hired Dr. Rudolph “Rudy” F. Crew as the new Superintendent to replace Merrett R. Stierheim, who is retiring June 30. His compensation package, including salary, bonuses, moving and housing allowance, taxes (paid by the school system), plus a car and a lot of other perks, totals over $700,000. Let’s hope he earns it.
