Teachers weigh contract decisions
#1 Apr 10, 2010
Yeah - they're all about helping the kids. But what are you gonna pay me for doing it?
I don't mind the "whaddya gonna pay me" part but quit the B.S. about we're all about the kids because that's just a crock of crap!

"contacts can be broken with the help of an attorney"?
Nice place to do business. Why sign a contract?

Cuts happen because the business can't make money. taxes can't go up anymore in that town so cuts have to be made. I heard rumor their taxes went up 10% last year u can't keep doing that every year so.... something has to give maybe both parties need to be in the other parties shoes and agree on something. If u can make cuts without downgrading in the quality of education do it. SORRY TO THOSE WHO DON'T AGREE

We all have taken cuts in life. The teachers should also, or maybe their greed will just be enough to close the school down. The tax payers of Adams can not afford to keep paying more for taxes. NO jobs where do they think the money is coming from? By the way our insurance went from 100 percent paid to 65/35 now that is a hike in our cost and now we have to worry about teachers insurance to. Its unfair to us people in town I agree with you all the way, just wish the public can vote on what we should give the teachers it would be zero like my last raise that I was suppose to get. I was just hopping for 50 cents more an hour.

To everyone who thinks they know everything...
None of these teachers are looking for more money. What they are asking for is simple respect and an idea as to whether or not they have a job(as I am sure each and everyone of you would). When a few people in town petitioned for a second town meeting, the teachers were given a letter stating that they would not be getting their contracts as a result of this. The manner in which this was done was undoubtedly cruel and clearly caused some unease. Forced with looming budget cuts, this was not helpful. Now that this petition has been dropped, there is no longer any reason to reneg on their contracts. None of the classroom teacher's positions have even been discussed as possibly being part of the 4.5% cut the town voted for; so the reasoning behind the lack of contract is questionable to say the least.
With the end of the school year approaching, it would certainly be nice for them to know whether or not they should be looking for other jobs.
