I predict that no solution is possible to resolve this school furlough crisis. There are too many hypocritical people not willing to compromise and negotiate for the good of the community, too many union bosses each having his own agenda.

But the teachers are not taking any pay cuts, they are simply taking time off. When they got big pay raises did they work longer hours? No. So why are they taking time off instead of a pay cut. 3 day weekends instead of a pay cut. The teachers invented furlough fridays so they could impact parents and students enough that everyone would say all right all ready raise my taxes give the teachers more pay. But then the HGEA and UPW will say the same thing so pretty soon no one takes any cuts except the tax payer.

Again..furloughs? Its time to fire people. Doe : fire all your do nothing bureaucrats(50%) of the budget, Go to community based schooling. The vast sums of money in the Doe will then go the classroom and keiki. More taxes and money to support a totally dis-functional Educational system is ludicrous!! We should all sign a petition to vote on the balanced state budget including dissolution of the DOE and BOE. Not more taxes and more gov't less and responsible honest Gov't!
Take the pay cut

Yes, this is so true. Teachers are not taking a pay cut, they are taking 3 day weekends at the expense of the students. TAKE THE STRAIGHT PAY CUT and get back to school.

Leslie,

The truth is ---- the earth is getting cooler, the ice sheet is growing and you probably drive your car everyday by yourself waiting for government to do something for you.

You really should look at facts. Then you wouldn't make such obvious mistakes...

"October 2009

At the end of the Arctic summer, more ice cover remained this year than during the previous record-setting low years of 2007 and 2008. However, sea ice has not recovered to previous levels. September sea ice extent was the third lowest since the start of satellite records in 1979, and the past five years have seen the five lowest ice extents in the satellite record.

NSIDC Director and Senior Scientist Mark Serreze said,“It’s nice to see a little recovery over the past couple years, but there’s no reason to think that we’re headed back to conditions seen back in the 1970s. We still expect to see ice-free summers sometime in the next few decades.”..."

Oh the truth is out there but Opportunistic Nut Cases Like Al Gore and his Spin Army don't want you to know it ;)

The Good news is that the Truth is coming out via thousands of scientists world wide ;)

We have had ice free summers numerous times over the longer Earth climate cycles the pro warming goons spout off about.

There was NO Industry,Autos and there were Zilch humans in those cycles ;)

As the the other poster said ; Gore is an Opportunistic Nut Case trying to make Milions out of a a faux premise.
