    Re: Starting salary
    pksped, who did the math....wow!

    Comparing the same school districts that I mentioned in my
    previous post, I would lose $2669 if I went one district over,
    and gain $3957 if I went one district over the other way. (And
    I could have earned that with M+15, instead of the M+30 where I
    am now.) And neither district is even close to any of the Big
    C's, Dayton, Toledo, or any other larger city in the state, lest
    you think I'd be going to a more urban area.) Money isn't
    everything... I'll keep my pay where it is, thanks.
