You really have no idea what you are talking about. Some people that teach in Newburgh in particular have nursing degrees, auto mechanic certifications, etc and yes they can work elsewhere for more money. Get off your angry rant it gets redundant.
What percentage do you suppose that might be, 10%. MAYBE? Where would all those elementary school teachers find work in the real world? Social studies teacher? Gym teachers? English teachers? Shall I continue?

The FACT is that government teachers, by and large, wouldn't survive a day in the real world, which is why the VAST majority of them aspired to government employment and literally living the life of child, carried through life on the backs of their neighbors.

If you dont like high taxes, you should move outta ny state. I grew up and marlboro, and left because of the high taxes. I now live in a much wealthier rural town im upstate CT and i couldn't be happier. For a 2000 sq ft house in litchfield county with 3the acres, you only pay 2,500 bucks a year total for taxes. Yes thats both school and property taxes, and the schools are wonderful. Get out of marlboro and ny state. Its a sinking ship
