Schools can't afford extra programs and sports because of this economy, plus we pay teachers the highest salary and compensation package in the nation.Kids actually suffered and schools suffer because the majority of tax money goes to teachers salaries which are over the top and exorbitant not the kids. Something needs to change in teachers salaries a serious give back from teachers unions in the next few years or we are all in trouble.

Long Island Schools are in dire straights and need the Teacher Union salaries and health benefits reform immediately or we will be in even bigger trouble soon.

It is time for Teachers unions to give back and proof they care about kids their educations and schools, now we think they want the jobs for time off the get and high salaries not for what results are given.
