Yes, they have the best insurance plan! I am not worried about my job! I receive a retirement each month plus my salary. We are going to keep our jobs. Mr Wagner has several years left on his contract. By that time I will have worked the five years I need to get a second retirement. I work hard. I deserve it. Why don't you hater get a life. Shame on you.
or necessary to hire 100 day wonders, society works better when you have worked out a good retirement you go home and enjoy it and let a young person have a job. We have people with college degree's in Pike County that are covered up with student loan debt and can't find a job. Another problem is putting qualified people in those positions, a social studies teacher or history teacher may not be qualified for finance or even to be instructional supervisors. Just because you have been a loyal political crony lap dog for 30 years don't mean you deserve that job or are qualified for it..you are also knocking a young person out of a job in very difficult times, or do you remember being out there fresh out of college and looking for a job..most of you will have empty nest, the kids all grown and gone. Young people with families need those jobs, you got your retirement, don't die at your desk trying to pay off your vacation home or your new Lexus.

I have read some really ridiculous statements in this thread. Most, I am sure, have never walked in a teacher's shoes. Politics runs most school systems. That I agree with. As a teacher I take responsibility for low test scores. Because I take it personally. But to say the responsibility is only the teacher's is wrong. The test scores are public and I can guarantee this....there won't be many parents who even care or ask about it at our next open house and parent/teacher conferences. I have been teaching a long time and I have yet to see a huge concern from the majority of parents we have. There are responsibilities at home that fall on the parents. My parents always encouraged and supported education. Parental involvement is critical. A lot of the accusations and assumptions I have read here....simply isn't the case. Politics aside.

parents are aware of the system why bother,truth is most parents would not sent their kids to school if it wasn't for the man made laws that would lock you up,bottom line tax dollars waste to support a failing system,not only local but national,Do away with teachers retirements and see how many gets out,for their hearts are now into teaching kids,years back ,way back teachers were teachers not in today society,kids today are smarter than most of the society,and they don't need a test score to reflect that.

Are you serious? I'm not doing it for the low pay. It's been a truly rewarding profession in so many ways. I will set you straight on one issue. Today's students lack common sense. I see it everyday. And it's disconcerning. I will take common sense along with a little education any day.

Nothing But The Kids is a double negative. I have wanted to say that ever since RJ came up with that slogan. His language skills are pitiful, and he is Assistant Superintendent? Sad!

So much for his double negatives, how about your grammar? Why are you complaining?

And he is Assistant Superintendent, does that title bother you. What are you?
Bye bye Rog
