1. Buffalo Teachers never asked for the plastic surgery rider. It was given as part of the package the district chose for ALL of its employees ( not only teachers---ALL district employees). There is no corruption since the teachers didn't ask for this. Blame the city and/or the district for not knowing any better!

2. Teachers are ready and willing to do do away with the rider. There have been NO CHANGES to current benefits because the last contract (which remains since it expired in 2004) is what they have until the teachers and district negotiate a new one! Both sides must come together for that to happen.

3. There are other city employees that have the same benefits, but no one seems to care about that. The media and the general public are constantly blaming the teachers for things they know nothing about. How convenient for the Board Members and the Superintendent to be able to deflect attention away from their total greed and incompetence. It appears that they will stay away from negotiating with the teachers so that the teachers will be the "corrupt bad guys" as long as these benefits remain.

4. Ask yourself if you will readily concede any of the benefits you have been given by your employer--vacation time, days off, etc.

5. One more lesson for you...only SOME of the teachers have the plastic surgery rider. There are four plans (Blue Cross Blue Shield) that teachers can enroll in. Only ONE (Traditional BC BS) has the plastic surgery rider. There are MANY teachers who do not have the rider as part of their health insurance.

The Buffalo News is part of the problem. They have added to the demise of the public schools and the City of Buffalo. Shame on them.

Perhaps,but just think about who the teachers have to directly interact with when they are at work. In an urban environment being a teacher is probably the most dangerous job in the world. Unarmed and outnumbered it is analogous to putting a handcuffed cop in the yard of a supermax prison and telling the inmates that nobody is watching.
