What's the matter Mr. Pennycuff scared you might loose your cushy job? I agree you are not making widgets, but you are also not educating our youth.

I am an educator. Most principals I know work 70+ hours as it is. How can putting them in charge of multiple schools be a good idea? I am worried for the future of education in Ohio.

It's the funding and the over the top taxes we pay. That's the real problem. My house payment went up $200 a month this year due to Canal Winchester's tax levy and they want to put another one on the balot next year?

49% of you elected someone who knows NOTHING about education, except that he hates public schools. He hates government and thinks it should all be privatized (yet wants to work for government lol) That's why his kids attend a private school.
Way to go, Ohio

Why are people so intent on others losing their jobs? I thought Kasich wants to bring employment into Ohio. Oh yeah, he will, he will start a "non profit" run by one of his cronies to watch over us. His friends will gain employment in Ohio, not the little guy. If he is like Indiana's governor, he will rent out our tollway for 75+ years. That way, the people who work for the state on the tollway will lose their jobs and pensions. And of course, one of his cronies will make even more money.
Capitalism at its finest... just like the NAFTA program. The rich get richer, the poor pay more.
We might have needed a change, but I don't think Kasich was the answer.

The fact of the matter is that schools are not a business, they are a service. If you'll recall, it was big business that needed a multi-billion dollar bailout recently -- not schools -- so I fail to see why we are applauding the imposition of that logic onto one of our most valuable public services.
Maybe if we publicly funded schools as well as we publicly fund big business we could afford to pay teachers more than the average receptionist.

Not to mention you are off all summer long and getting paid.
You, obviously, don't know what you are talking about. Teachers DO NOT get paid for the summer. We do, however, stretch our pay out for the months we are off. It makes our paychecks smaller year-round, but we are able to have that pay during our time off. Teachers work very hard to educate their students. I'll admit there are some who are not the best, but in all reality, you will get that in any profession (doctors, business professionals, etc). From the time my students come into my room until the time they leave, ALL of my attention is on them. Please don't judge all of us because of a few bad apples.

Maybe Kasich's father should give back his USPS pension. That would save us a bit of money. Just saying... LOL

While he's restructuring public education, letting parents ''pay for play'' if their child desires to participant in any extracurricular activities is a great idea,too.

Getting paid through the summer is not a problem if you can understand how that works. Say the teacher made $52,000 a year. To get paid through the summer, they would get a check for $1,000 a week. If they did not get paid through the summer, they would get $1209 per week. They are not getting any extra money by getting a paycheck through the summer.
Can you understand that? For some reason, a few people can't.

70+ hours every month? We have been worried about the quality of education for years as well as the systems being cost-effective. Go John!

Maybe he would, if he was alive, dimwit!

Kasich was raised in the Roman Catholic Church but reconsidered his faith after his parents were killed in an automobile crash in 1987.[1][2] He now attends a non-denominational evangelical Christian Church. Kasich is of Croatian descent.[3][4]

Listen to the little piggies squeal when someone comes along to cut their pork. People cannot afford anymore taxes. Pay checks are smaller taxes are higher. I cannot afford anymore levies. Dont tell me to cut back on one pizza a month either. People that work for the schools are going to have to feel some of the pain like the rest of us.

Bull! The average teacher in Gahanna makes over 67,000 dollars per year. They are also contractually mandated to work only 1350 hours per year. I'll do the math for you - this equates to nearly $50 and hour. We've all been exposed to the education system. Does anyone really believe a teacher is worthy of more money than a nurse, a pharmacist, or any other profession that requires advanced degrees, a high level of technical knowledge, and one that works all year round? The average nurse makes roughly 55,000 dollars per year and works year round. Do honestly believe the ruse that teachers are not being compensated for the 3-4 months they spend not working? If so, I have a bridge I'd like to sell you.

Big Johnson; here ever are you getting your informaton. I defy you to go in front of a class of kindergardners and have 1 second to drink coffee or look at a newspaper.Lunches are 30 min if that and most of the time answering parent phone calls. These kids will be your doctors,firemen, policemen and so forth in the future so if they reaceive a poor education you can expect poor service.

Schools want more money for the service they provide and the taxpayers don't like the service they provide. The consumer is always right,right? WE DEMAND A BETTER SERVICE!!
