Maybe some teachers need to do what my daughter did, get jobs out of the state, in her and her boyfriends case, South Carolina. Another few years and we will be joining them. A whole bunch of others in her ESU graduating class have done the same thing only those who stayed here are whining about no jobs.

Don't know what PSERS specifically requires and I don't really care. I am not a K -12 teacher and my retirement is through TIA CREF. As I wrote earlier, pensions are not contractual issues and I was writing about the current contract negotiations. Some of you keep coming back to pensions. If you have a problem with it, then take it up with your political people. They make the rules.
From what I understand, teachers will soon pay 10% of their gross income in retirement and receive 80% of their best three years after 40 years of teaching. That sounds fair to me.
As for this statement "Yes , most of you were good but how high do you want to go and who will be paying for it ?" if you are referring to salaries, and I think you are, I wrote earlier that salary is not an issue. Asking how high we want to go is different than asking what are we willing to settle for. We've made that decision and believe me, it's next to nothing. Factor in inflation and it's worse. But, no one that I know of is complaining.
You wouldn't know what inflation is .

Is this a private circle jerk or can anyone join?
Really Bill you're right. I told my kids to bring their own paper hats and hair nets and sure enough they were hired the same day.
You can't circle jerk Auntie Em , she doesn't have the right equipment . I'm sure Bill would be happy to have you join in .
