Re: “Superintendent gets big raise” (TNT, 6-14).

Wow – $700-a-month car allowance for Tacoma’s superintendent of schools. I now understand why there is never enough money for education.

The school board needs to go back to school to learn common sense. We are all struggling, and the superintendent gets a huge raise so we can keep up with the Joneses. We can now feed the kids beans and rice.

It is shameful and outrageous.
