And the real loser is... Another Generation of American Kids!
That's just what you get when a racist troll tries to discuss something other than how much he hates black people.
Presumably they want their members' to review the terms before that happens. Also, why put the onus on SEA to reveal details, when SPS is just as capable of doing so as well.
On second thought, given SPS's general level of (in)competency, perhaps I've answered my own question...
new hires are making $51,000, teachers who worked for ten years are making $76,000 and long-term teachers are earning $99,000.00 per year. This is crazy! How are they not earning enough with $76,000 after ten years? Imagine a husband and wife teaching team taking home $152,000 a year. They could buy a house in Madison at that rate. Is that what the COLA is for? Is our goal to get all the teachers moving to Medina in twenty years?
A decent win for teachers paychecks.
So -- tell us -- how does our country that spends far more than other developed nations on primary & secondary education, lift itself from the bucket of shittiness that has been the publication education racket of the past 40 years?
Nice work unions and Bureaus of the State!
Having the kid out of school is of little consequence for my family, but for many parents I'd bet having the schools shut down again after two days would test their loyalty to the teachers. Since they've proven they're willing to strike, I'd think they could use that as a credible threat against the district in continuing negotiations as a bomb they're able to throw, but just haven't quite yet.
Dear Stranger, pls go back to allowing unregistered comments, then we don't have to ever see what the trolls spew.
One of the biggest problems with this bargaining process is the number of people commenting and drawing conclusions on how things went during bargaining, when they have no understanding of 1)how to negotiate a contract this big and 2) labor law.
