High benefit payouts hurt Oregon schools

Betsy Hammond of The (Portland) Oregonian analyzed state education data to find that "for each teacher, secretary, principal, janitor and other worker, Oregon schools paid an average of $18,300 for health insurance and retirement pay in 2002-03. That was 55 percent more than schools across the nation." Matching the national rate of benefits would save about $500 million a year.
