Spurred by the outrageous Golden Parachute given by the outgoing Trustees to the outgoing College of DuPage President, the Illinois General Assembly has sent a bill limited such rewards to one year’s salary.
Ex- President Walt Packard’s Golden Parachute came into play when State Rep. Mike Tryon spoke in favor of the bill, according ot Friday’s Chicago Tribune.
“I hope this never happens to any community college in any other part of the state,” he said.
Jumping off the page was this sentence:
It also would limit standard contracts to four years and require public notice and approval of any new, amended or renewed employment deals. [Emphasis added.]
Wouldn’t it be something if such a requirement were enacted concerning teacher contracts?
Now they very, very rarely are made public before they are approved by both the teachers’ union and the school board.
