September 13, 2014. Schaumburg, IL. (ONN) Illinois’ highest publicly paid educator is proud friends with the global terrorist and military dictator who protected and hid Osama bin Laden from US forces after 9/11. The deposed military dictator is also charged with treason and the assassination of Pakistani reform Prime Minister Mrs. Benazir Bhutto. We’re talking about former Pakistani strongman Pervez Musharraf and his friend, the highest paid educator in Illinois, Mohsin Dada from Schaumburg.

Normally, we wouldn’t openly connect an Illinois school administrator with Osama bin Laden and international terrorism. But in the case of Schaumburg School District 54’s Mohsin Dada, we’ll make an exception. Dada still proudly proclaims his admiration for jailed Pakistani dictator Pervez Musharraf, complete with pictures of the two together prominently displayed on Mohsin Dada’s own personal website. Not to be outdone, there are also plenty of pictures of Mohsin Dada with Hillary Clinton. Maybe that explains why he rakes in a half million dollars per year, compliments of Illinois taxpayers, even though he’s embroiled in scandals and lawsuits.
Open the Books on IL school spending
‘At OpenTheBooks.com today, we released our SNAPSHOT™ Spending Report for 928 IL school districts,’ the announcement from Open The Books began, ‘Each report covers pensions, salaries, and vendor spending. Each individual school district is bench marked on spending vs. consumer price index (CPI) inflation.’
For the past few years, the taxpayer watchdogs at Open The Books have been forcing federal, state and local governments to make their spending public. Slowly but surely, sometimes with a court order forcing them, cities like Chicago and counties like Cook released every itemized expense down to the penny. What we’ve discovered since then, is that there’s a reason government spending is so secretive. It’s riddled with corruption.
Open The Books founder and Chairman Adam Andrzejewski happily used his own town’s school spending as a typical example of what they found when looking at education spending across Illinois. “In my hometown of Hinsdale, the salary spending since 2000 is up over 76% vs. inflation,” Andrzejewski reports, “The average salary is over $105,000 and 223 employees make over $100,000 per year. Incredibly, the teachers are threatening to strike.”
We’ve all heard the non-stop television commentators informing us that America’s teachers and their fellow school administrators are insultingly under-paid. But with an average salary of $105,000 per year, more and more taxpayers are waking up to the truth. The following are only a few examples our friends from Open The Books discovered.
