Enough with the crying poverty! That's like the guy with a loaf under his arm and crying he has no ham. Teachers make more than MOST Long Islanders.
Be grateful you have a job. Quite frankly, I am hoping they do away with that "tenure" B.S. as well. You are not "entitled" to a job because of tenure. You keep a job because you are a good employee. Period.

School needs to go 12 months per year. They get paid far too much money for the little time they work. Tax payers are getting raped.

Long Island teachers enjoy a salary and retirement that the rest of us can only dream of. To force tax payers to maintain these high salaries and benefits is extremely unfair. This inflammatory article tells parents to teach their kids to behave and accept higher classroom volumes- and step up to the plate. I say teachers need to step up to the plate and cut the noose they put around our necks. They have a racket and don't even know it because they live in a fantasy world.

I am a software developer and I earn a great living. I believe teachers should be the highest paid people in our economy. But, from the other side of the argument, teachers should come from industry and not teachers colleges. I want chemistry teachers to have degrees in chemistry. I want economics teachers to have degrees in economics. Not teachers who teach math but are educated in eductation. I want our teachers to be professionals in their special areas and not just education specialists.

Only vote against the republicans if you want to foster a sense of dependence on your government. Soon, everyone will have a government job. Soon everyone will be a state employee. Everything will be fair under democratic control. You are so right sippy, lol.
