I see that some of the potential cuts are "marching band camp, seventh grade basketball and volleyball teams, varsity winter track, summer remedial programs and one season of cheerleading."
I am failing to see why all people have to pay for programs that only SOME of the kids use. If it is so important, let their parents pay. Same goes for any after school program. I don't see why this is such a stretch. Your kids are in High School for 4 years, prior to this, you had to PAY for them to be in Little League, basketball, etc. Why should this change in High School?
If it is not part of the core curriculum in a regular school hour day, then let the parents pay.
How many teachers jobs can be saved then?
Any talk of merit based pay? Probably not.
And if layoffs occur, is it based on how good the teacher is, or is it FIFO like the city?
