Schaumburg falls within High School District 211, which received its desired tax increase during the April 2005 elections in order to balance the budget for the future school years, with intense advertising done by the faculty of Schaumburg High School.
It is the opinion of many Schaumburg taxpayers and students that the proposed fund increase for 2005 is by no means "much needed". Schaumburg teachers, especially high school teachers are among the highest paid in the state. Schools in Schaumburg have a myriad of extracurricular activities. Many taxpayers would say the teachers in district 211 are grossly overpaid and over-benefited.
