A searchable online database including salaries of 255,959 teachers and administrators employed by New York State's public schools and colleges during the 2007-08 school year is now posted at SeeThroughNY.net, the government transparency website sponsored by the Empire Center for New York State Policy.

"SeeThroughNY.net now features the most comprehensive information on teacher and administrator salaries ever made available to New York State taxpayers," said Lise Bang-Jensen, the Empire Center's senior policy analyst. Jensen says taxpayers can consider this information as they head to the polls to vote on school budgets this month.
The newly added database consists of names and 2007-08 gross pay amounts, including added stipends, for all members of the New York State Teachers' Retirement System, which administers pension benefits for public-sector educators outside New York City.
