The National Education Association’s president, Lily Eskelsen Garcia, received a 9.5 percent pay raise and had a 23 percent boost in total compensation in 2016, according to documents the teachers union filed with the federal government.

Garcia’s salary increased from $303,934 in 2015 to $332,944 while her total compensation jumped from $416,633 to $512,504.

Michigan’s public school teachers who belong to the Michigan Education Association have a portion of their union dues forwarded to the NEA.
