The teachers have us all fooled. Our school taxes go up, up, up so they can drive nice cars and during the 180 days they work, they do a poor job teaching the students. Hey look at the test scores for the rome district! Very low.

Don't group "government workers" with the teachers! Federal government workers WORK 8 hours a day & they will NOT be getting a raise until at least 2014. heath insureance for a family is about 600 per month! Perscriptions go up every year! Teachers have it made! The kids are sooooo stuipid when they graduate.The average ROME teacher makes about 70000. MOST are making in EXCESS of 80000!

Has RSD complied with federal and state mandates for teacher evaluations and eliminations?

That's $2.5 million just waiting to be added to the school district funding and probably the same amount in savings from the eliminations and hiring of competent teachers who care about educating our youth.

There are a lot of teachers that are very good, but there are also a lot of bad seeds in our schools who are not teaching anymore but simply collecting a paycheck and counting their years to retirement.

Comply with the mandates and eliminate those unworthy to be instructing our children.

Don't forget that they don't pay health care for themselfs and their families. Not only high salaries you have to add in all the perks.

They have to have one or be earning one in so much time? We wouldn't expect a GED grad to understand.

Sure they have to have a master degree, but after that, they take total joke courses and attend online seminars and count it as credit beyond the master degree. And with those extra credits, they get huge bumps in their pay. What a joke they all should be ashamed of themselves. And of course we are forced to pay more in our school taxes to support them. Not whinning, just stating fact.

Walk in our shoes for one day, than you can judge.#1- after we have earned our MS degree we constantly have to take classes to meet stay updated.#2 - we don't work an 8hr. day, we work a 10hr. day at least, and still bring home work to be graded and plan.#3 - we are not only teachers but therapists, referees, mediators, and humanitarians! You have no idea the issues that many of our children have on a daily basis...if we could just teach it would be wonderful. At the school I'm at we have one security guard to take care of over 800 students, so therefore we are always breaking up fights and disrespectful students on a daily basis.#4 - The old days our long gone in Rome where teachers make good pay. The older teachers that our grandfathered in do well, but other than that we make on average $40,000. We pay for about half of our health care (which isn't great) and the new tier of retirement is not what it was (about 1/3 of your pay). We are not teachers for the pay...most (not all) our teachers because we care for the children and their future and well being. But if you don't believe me come in any school and observe for one day!

I'm not a teacher, but I think most of the problems of students not learning falls on the parents. Also we are top heavy with administrators. And most of the people that bitch about teachers are probably poor students or the parents of students doing poorly, and it's much easier to blame the teacher. I also think we need to revamp the education system, if teachers could just focus on teaching the outcome would only benefit the students!

If what I heard about the John Joy Teachers not wanting the pledge of allegiance allowed in school then I think they should find employment else where. This is a real slap in the face to all of us. Its time to make a stand. There is a glut of good young hungry teachers. It sounds like some top administrators should also take a walk

I agree. I'm a teacher( not for the Rome district) but for a local school. I don't make as much as they are saying they make. I do my job because because I love it it. It's sad that people just do it for so much money and don't teach to help the kids

I highly dought every teacher in Rome works 10 -12 hour days! They work 6 hours 180 days a YEAR! Great benifits, almost FREE health insurance! They get everything they want here in ROME! Don't try and BS people into thinking you work THAT hard! The kids come out of 12th grade with a 5th grade reading level because YOUR superintendint doesn't believe in keeping kids back because it makes HIM look BAD!

Walk in your shoes? Give me a break, your job isn't that tough, it's challenging. Without question it is challenging, but you get paid, and handsomely to do the job.

You act like you are shoveling coal or crapping in an Afghan desert with your m16 by your side. Be happy that you have a good job, stop trying to make it appear that it is the most difficult thing in the world so you can build up your own ego, it isn't. It's a good job, its a noble profession, but when we have upwards of 18 percent unemployment (u6 number not u3) it's a little annoying to see public employees cry about the job they HAVE.

I wish you could see my pay stub from yesterday and what they take out for health insurance and union dues. Believe me when I tell you it's not free! And like I said before if you have a child in our school system ask if you can spend a day with them and you will see all the sh.. we put up with. I don't know any teacher that only works 6hrs. a day, it's at least 8hr a day. Teaching is not what it used to be. In the past 2yrs. alone I have seen several student teachers that have student taught along with a teacher and than decide that teaching is not for them. Yesterday alone I dealt with a child that was saying he wanted to hurt himself because his girlfriend broke up with him, broke up a fight, looked for a student that never came back from the bathroom after a long time and was hiding. If all we had to do was teach it would be great...but unfortunately we deal with all this other crap!And yes I agree with you our superindendent is over payed, but we certainly our not!
