'Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous', Oklahoma Education edition

Americans For Prosperity Oklahoma recently released the following video, highlighting what they call excessive salaries among Oklahoma school superintendents.

AFP-OK State Director Stuart Jolly pointed out that 202 Oklahoma superintendents make over $100,000 per year. "22 school superintendents made more than $147,000, which is the salary of Governor Mary Fallin," Jolly said.

The video compares superintendent salaries with those of two-star Army generals, an Army colonel, the governor and lieutenant governor, and the average Oklahoma family's income (hint: even the general is out-ranked in pay by many school superintendents).
