The pension plan is unsustainable and will be legislated out of existence for new arrivals. The new 401k plan could be just as burdensome if the union has its way. The "Charter District" proposal ideas I hear floating around Harrisburg could have a substantial bearing on the whole pension mess.
Pension reform is WAY over due, these greedy b a st ards will milk every dime they can out of the taxpayer.

Hold on to your panties, this is only the beginning.

As school districts statewide continue cutting, Pennsylvania's largest cyber school announced plans for widespread expansion, including at least 80 new teachers and a $5.7 million building project in downtown Midland in Beaver County.

“It's a big jump, but we're a big school,” said Michael Conti, CEO of Pennsylvania Cyber Charter School.“For so long, we've relied on our students and our parents to do the heavy lifting for every child's education. We're changing things up a bit.”

Hahaha you left off the next paragraph:
"The expansion arrives less than a year after prosecutors indicted the company's founder and former CEO Nicholas Trombetta, who investigators allege illegally funneled $1 million from school coffers. Trombetta pleaded not guilty to 11 counts of mail fraud, bribery, tax conspiracy and filing false tax returns last year. A trial date has not been scheduled."
Charter schools are ripe for graft, fraud and theft. And this so called "plan" (which is all it is), is a far cry from the "charter district" you have insisted was like the second coming of Christ. Pension reform and union management are the necessities in righting public schools, so how about you get on board with that?

I know it is hard for you to be rational and face the facts that the current system is unsustainable.

I think that's the point being made, that the current retirement system is unsustainable and the union must be dealt with in order to protect resources in schools.
