Its not that people are jealous of teachers. Teachers are way over paid and they bitch more then students. Cut backs take away from the kids and the teachers always want more and more. People tried of it.

"Which Way". You should have invested 100!k and became a teacher. Taken 6 years of college courses, and became a teacher, then get bashed from woodchucks for doing so. I can't understand why you are agin merger, to save your school, when you hate your teachers? If you close it those greedy teachers will be gone, along with the school.

this proves nothing, it also trys to deviate away from our districts while talking about others. this is just one more scare tactic used by those with a private agenda. I quess we can understand why they are pulling these stunts, after all a 17+% pay raise for a state employee at this time is very nice.

Just was told of this web site. I can afford 3 percent tax hike not 17 or 37 percent coming. Is this false or true?
