After so many years of loyal service, two 10% paycuts (which saved the school district over 2 million dollars), and an increasingly abusive and unsafe work environment, these teachers most certainly have been betrayed by the superintendent. The budget is still out of control, he has no loyalty to his staff, and the district has become a toy for the State of Michigan to play with. Part of the job of any boss is to protect the staff and protect the company. Dr. Seawood has done neither. What this article did not explore is the mass exodus of teachers during the school year. By the end of the year, how many substitutes were in full time teaching positions at the high school and throughout the district? How many students received diplomas this year? How many students were retained (did not pass their classes)? What has been done to give these students the opportunity to pass? These are much more important questions to deal with but no one seems to asking them.

There seems to be a total lack of leadership in Benton Harbor. Everything is in shambles. Teachers are vitally important in any community, more so in Benton Harbor where the young people seem to be lost. But that's what happens when the residents of the city won't vote or voice their concerns. There is no support across the board. It seems that no one truly cares. Nothing is being done there, not even public services. Where is the money really going?
