I can't believe our schools are actually on spring break for the rest of the week! What are they on break from? They have missed more days since christmas than they should have because of the weather. You would think the school board would be trying to make these days up instead of giving them more time off. We are going to have a bunch of dumb lazy young people who think it's ok to skip work whenever they want. Years ago we did'nt get out of school every time a little snow fell. School was hardly ever cancelled. If you ask me the school system is wasting tax payers money, paying these teachers and "so called aides" for doing nothing. No wonder young people today are spoiled little smart mouthed brats. We need someone on the school board with enough moxie to stand up to the softies and worry more about educating these kids. Someone said the person in charge at the bus garage determines if school is cancelled, who is this? And why does he cancell school so easily? I agree a few days were really bad, but some of the missed days were just uncalled for. Are they making these days up at the end of the year? Seems like to me they would have taken spring break. That would have been three days made up right there.

Hate to have your kids at home-just lock them outside-do ou know your children's teachers names-do you check their folders-it is not the teachers job to keep your child from being a spoiled smart mouth- that is your job-"so called aides"-one aide in the system has to change diapers on two of the children-one child is in a wheelchair-the aide has to put this child in his walker-not to mention help with the other kids in the class. People like you are so quick to blame Teachers for something they have have any control over! Yes, I am a teacher-retired-but I had to deal with people like you that blame everything on someone else-when actually you are the problem.

No one was blaming teachers. I said if there's no school, they are getting paid anyway but, the children are not being taught. They need to be in school. Now is the time for them to be educated. If every year goes by as this one has, they miss out on their education. For someone who is an ex-teacher, you sure don't comprehend very well. I have no children at home, so you're wrong again. Sounds like you were a teacher who did'nt care if your students actually learned anything or not. Sounds like you were too busy making assumptions about the students and their parents blaming you for everything. And I'm sure this aide is getting paid. It's part of her job to take care of the children (handicapped or not). She certainly should not be complaining about it to everyone, as apparently she must be doing for you to get on here spouting about it. You should read posts and try to understand them before jumping on here yelling about ungrateful parents.

Blame teachers! How dare u! They r dead days! Teachers will not get paid ! It was in the contract! They are making up time and days at the end of the year! The state dept has a final say on days off and hours! Most put in extra hours each day! I taught over 35 yrs and probably spent over 5,000 on my own for supplies! Maybe you should complain about that!

Dear Opinion,
You are certainly one of the biggest idiots ever. You sound like a complete moron. You might want to consider that from now on.

It's not the teachers falt they are so many snow days now days . But I remember when I was in school they was hardly and days called completely off . Most the time they would put chains on the buses and kids went to school . And if some of the roads.was to bad for buses to travel on. They would just call school off for them bus routes only. But were does anybody get off blaiming teachers for school getting called off? Cause that's not there call to make if school gets called off or not. But I do think that the kids should have to make those school days up that's called off on count of snow. But the teachers should get paid more than they do . Cause not all but most kids are out of control now days. If you have kids that dont like to listen pay attention or back talk .Imagine if you had to deal with a whole classroom of unruly kids . most teachers deserves a medal of honor or adleast alittle gratitude for dealing with the kids now days on the day to day bases without loosen there patients . SO PEOPLE NEED TO GIVE CREDIT WHERE CREDIT IS DO AND BACK OFF THE TEACHERS .For every little thing they want to complain about. TEACHING KIDS RESPECT STARTS AT HOME. When I was growing up I knew if I messed up in school I had to answer to my parents when I got home.
