Teacher's Union Divides Community

Thank you teachers union for dividing our community and leaving our students with less opportunity. Your decades of lobbying and greedy contract negotiations, coupled with a lack of formidable resistance at the state and local level, has resulted in less opportunity for our students, a divided community, and financially strapped districts. And now you are suing NYS, challenging the new property tax cap?
NYS has the highest cost per pupil for public education, yet ranks terribly at 38th in the nation in graduation rates. Please feel free to debate these statistics with Governor Cuomo's office, in which these facts come from.
This thread is directed towards the teachers union and those who defend it. It is not directed at all of the teachers, we all know teachers who don't agree with what this union has become, a union in which they are forced to join, however I do urge those teachers who disagree to become more involved.

These statistics are also on the NYSUT web site, followed by pages of excuses......
The teachers union looks childish making excuses for the lousy NYS graduation rates, NYS teachers are the higest paid in the country, you are getting more than compensated for a job you say is more difficult. If you want an easier teaching job, move the heck out of NYS and take the lower than average salaries offered in other states. If you don't like the new evluations, just do us a favor and quit so new teachers can be hired that will produce results.
