Olentangy for Kids: time for a math check

Olentangy for Kids loves to flaunt this graph -- it's the lead banner of the OFK dog and pony show:

Add 7.9 mills to Olentangy and the district is the only behind Bexley as far as school taxes.

Ten years ago, the district was one of the lowest taxed in the area. Now it is heading for second place.

Note: Ironically, the graph is under the heading, "My taxes seem high. Why is that?" Ok. Let me take that bait. Could the reason your taxes seem high be because they are high? Hmmm.

Wisconsin's "Emeritus" program allows teachers and administrators to collect a year's worth of salary (benchmarked against their highest earning-year, of course) for 30 days' work. They can spread the thirty days' work over three years. Fearing that those evil Republicans in the legislature are going to eliminate the program, 140 teachers and administrators are seeking early retirement this year to take advantage of it.
