So, we are led to believe by this story, that they are "cut off" ?

LET THEM LIVE OFF THEIR FATTY, INFLATED BUDGETS, THEIR INFLATED TEACHERS UNION SALARIES, and the other PORK, they have in their EMPIRE !

The days where, we worry about "the...Children", and be BILKED OUT OF OUR TAX DOLLARS, HOPEFULLY, ARE OVER !

Great attitude to have. There is a word that I would like to call you. The people need to realize the money isn't about salaries. All Newsday and BOE want to say it's because of salaries. If you want quality education then you have to pay for it. Our tax dollars are being taken for the upstate and city schools - that is something the majority of people on Long Island don't know. Read the facts. Long Island taxpayers taxes go to the state budget. So all of our money that we think is going into the schools is not. 30 children a class, no sports. Not worth it!

PLEASE, the school systems are GOVERNMENTS, unto themselves. And they way they run them, in this locality, is as a DICTATORSHIP!

To say that "Our tax dollars are being taken for the upstate and city schools" is a good, but time worn argument, that DOES NOT RESPOND, to the manner that they conduct their business, like it's a BOTTOMLESS PIT, of mis-management, AND WASTE !

TRIM THE FATTY PENSIONS & BENEFIT PACKAGES, and the NO SHOW JOBS, on school district payrolls.

The public employee unions,AND THE PROFESSIONALS WHO RUN THE SCHOOL DISTRICTS, because they ARE STRANGLING our locality, AND OUR STATE !

IN CASE YOU ARE ON MARS, PEOPLE DONT HAVE THE MONEY TO PAY FOR THIS WASTE !
