FYI I am neither a teacher or an employee of a school district. My priorities are not the same as yours and I just happen to disagree with people like you. If the majority of people on Long Island felt the same as you did, the budgets wouldn't pass....period! I'm sorry if you don't like it, but these are the facts.

No need to attack somebody just because they disagree with you. Unfortunately for you it says more about you than it does about the issue at hand.

I'm done here.

Teachers and administrators on LI have bankrupt local homeowners with and without kids in the system.

Saying anything else is like trying to pick poop by the clean end.

When schools hold kids extra-curricular activites (i.e. sports, and other after school prgrams) hostage.....meaning that these activities are the first tiings cut (not teachers salaries) then of course people vote to pass the budget......they want that for their kids. I'd bet my house that if the first item to be cut would be teachers salaries, you'd see A LOT of budgets NOT passing.

Passing a budget is not necessarily a "vote fore the teachers salaries", it's more often than not a vote for saving kids programs.

Keep the salaries (even raise the starting salaries) in exchange for elimination of unnecessary tenure, elimination of post retirement medical benefits, and conversion of your defined benefit pension plan to a defined contribution plan.
Same prescription for the other big unions, like the PBA.
and also the President, Congress and the Senate
