How about they just raise taxes. New Yorkers already pay some of the highest taxes in the country...time to pile on some more.

Teachers Salaries and their union contracts are like legal ponzi schemes - the teachers, benefits, retirements, and salaries will bankrupt the Long Island education system in few years to come. School districts relied on assistance, from Albany thats no longer available and they realize now we can's afford to pay these over the top and enormous salaries to teachers. Schools are being combined, class sizes made larger, and programs cut but teachers will get large raises every year while schools suffer and education takes a hit on Long Island.
