they should lay off the teachers who call in sick the most... Call it an Obamacare policy - if you rob the sick bank - you're gone!

Can't afford teachers, Don't open a new school!
Cut administration jobs, not the teacher who teach our kids. They are the most important. Oh yes and get rid of Bruce.
Watch our school board on TV. What a joke. Freinds and family plan cut also.
Nope

It is easy to say cut administrators but the truth is more have been laid off than ever before.Karam seems to be on the side of the taxpayers.Most teachers do not even live in Utica and thus pay no taxes.

This is one of those "what did you think was going to happen" moments.

You can't offer the level of compensation, benefits and pension that are offered in the UCSD and expect that it can go on forever. It can't. This is what happens.

Let's go one step farther and dump the varsity sports all together. Leo and Guido get huge fat salaries, they have trainers, all kinds of expense for equipment, the busing costs to games must be high -- and just what is the percentage of students who benefit, compared to the number of kids a music teacher sees in a week? Sports are great if the district can afford them. Utica cannot. Why does Proctor need a marching band? They don't even march in the local parades. Get rid of that as well. Dump the goofy electives like marine biology. Get back to basics and salvage the schools.

There is no salvaging the "Schools" whiteswhoro Sanctidaddy. You schools have always put "sports first" because that's about all you cavemen can understand is "sports". Not three Rs and a Master's Degree. Your results simply speak for themselves. Utica has not one known "sports alum" that "made it big because A the schools don't even teach them to read let alone excell at a team sport. The whole overblown "team sports" concept is a joke anyway the new stats prove despite what the American Athletic Neanderthal Assoc. says prove it.
Pragmatism rules. If you teach your child the Sciences and logic instead of "Run monkey throw ball monkey GOOD MONKEY!!!" your kid will go somewhere in life. Hand eye coordination, physics, peer reviewed academics in PRODUCTIVE skillsets get you kids with awesome futures.

Here you raise "School Feetball Stars" and wonder why worthless bottomfeeder jobs like "Prison Guard" are your only growth jobs. You simple don't deserve to excel because you don't program your kids with the real-world pragmatic logic and tools they need to get past the public servant welfare dole jobs you specialize in there.
Sports have their place but too often they are highlighted by the neanderthal desires of the parents and ridiculous peepeetoucher coaches that gravitate toward kids in tight little clothes and someone to boss around because nobody cares what they'd say otherwise looking at the sum-total contribution of those people's dullard lives.

Safe to say your kid will end up no further than you. Public welfare job in WhiteTrashWhoro.

Sp Whiteswhoro Sanctidaddy... do you instill your white trash evil crotchspring with your racist bents too? You are such a ranty and thin skinned little pubic servant, with YOUR upbringing I'm positive they'll make fine little feetball obsessed neanderthal State-fartcounters and black baby mommas like the rest of your whole region!

The sports budget is +/- 1% of the total budget so getting rid of sports wouldn't make a dent... It would just put more kids on the streets. Ucsd is severely underfunded as compared to other districts! That is the real problem along w the friends and family plan. Cuts should be in security! Those guys are making 30-35k a yr at a 2nd job!
