Krista, please let me inform you before you continue to act on such actions.The Teachers Union and themselves right up to Principals brought this whole situation upon themselves by becoming GREEDY! They would protest/strike for more money, better benefits and would get it. They Never paid a penny into there Health,Dental and Eye Glass which was the best-never paid a co-pay! They would get paid for working until a certain time-but Never fulfilled that requirement. These are just some of there ascts. Now, that a new Governor is in and a dam good one at that-smart as a whip-they are know feeling the pinch. Yes, the teachers are quick to blame else where. If the teachers,sects. and principals along with there Unions weren't so greedy, the money would have been there to further your education,skills and supplies. Do you realize a Police Officer out there protecting and serving: 1-Gets paid much less than a teacher,2-Has to pay & always had to pay into there Ins. and works more hours than your highly paid teachers! Tell me, have you ever heard or read about a Police Dept. striking for more money & better benefits? Please do some research to better enlighten yourself with the situation.

By evidence of your staunchly conservative view points, you are narrow-minded and greedy yourself. The walk out that was staged was not to point fingers at any certain group of people - not the teacher's union nor the governor. The walk out took place so we could demonstrate to the community, school board, and state government, that you must invest into your schools in order to get anything back in the future. Taking money out of the school district directly affects the students - especially when clubs, sports, and teachers are the ones being cut. Christie, himself, has not made any sacrifice. Is Christie cutting his salary? No. Secondly, Lakeland is filled with many administrators that do not directly affect the student's lives. As students, we ask - why aren't these employees being cut? Cutting one administrator could save two teachers and all of the clubs. We no longer need to be "top heavy" as a student mentioned. I understand your concern but realize that it is not the teachers that are being greedy or who are narrow-minded. Christie is cutting from the future of this state and the administration is implementing these cuts in the wrong direction. I urge you to please understand that education is vital to the success of each individual and I urge you to understand cutting the budget may decrease spending but will also leave NJ at a disadvantage in the long run.
