New report puts Utica on list of most financially stressed school districts....Congrats Utica, what a proud moment. School board and its leaders stink. And the city of Utica is pathetic. Great job mayor, your city is so bad.

When the day comes New York State United Teacher's Unions is bankrupt and it will happen, those employers will have their employees by their curly hairs. It will be the recipe to FIRE everyone affiliated with that district as like what Michigan had done to all their teachers
Michigan District Fires All Teachers, Closes Every School http://news.yahoo.com/michigan-district-fires...
Providence, RI School District: All teachers are fired
Once ALL are fired, including those in administration, there must be an outside source willing to take over and give those that still hold a teacher's license the chance to be rehired but with a salary no more than $20K across the board including the administration with mandatory elimination of all accrued sick days, slash sick days in half, one personal day per year, 50% payment towards health insurance, mandatory daily classroom instruction for all administrators, mandatory 50 week work week, mandatory 8 hour workday, end all expense accounts, mandatory show in event of snow day, mandatory dress code and mandatory yearly license renewals upon completion of 12 graduate hours of instruction at an accredited university.
Once NYSUT is GONE it will be easy to set these standards and for if they don't accept said job, they do not collect any unemployment compensation and as a provision of all mass firings these individuals can not apply for another position within a 250 mile radius or risk losing their license.
The day of reckoning is coming and the greatest event will be when all are fired and those who still do hold a legal license in education do not accept said job, turn it down, they will NOT receive unemployment insurance and if they attempt to find a job within a 250 mile radius, they lose their license in education, ouch there goes their curly hairs.
As for administration, back in the classroom they go on a daily basis for they have the time to do nothing they have the time to teach for they were teacher's first and must remain in the classroom, there is no excuse that administration do not teach in their field on a daily basis.
Then, when the union is bankrupt, SLASH THOSE PENSIONS IN HALF!

When the above occurs all the old ba$tards who are currently on payroll and are able to retain their licenses and are currently of legal age for retirement from the system they MUST denied all retirement until the age of 68 for then if they choose not to return to the classroom with the recommended salary of $20K they do not have to accept the job, but they can not collect unemployment insurance nor capitalize on their slashed benefit package until they turn the age of 68.
Those with a 401K, those benefits are gone under bankruptcy.

To be sure all employees show up for their duties each will have an ID card that they must slide with a PIN code after sliding their card upon entrance and exiting said building. PIN code changes on a daily basis. If said employee does not slide their card and confirm their card with PIN code, payment for the day will not be made.
Weekly random drug testing on each employee, mandatory medical excuse from those absent from their duties.
Eliminate all health benefits from all retirees in NYS teacher's retirement plan and can easily be done by following the Michigan plan!

The above educational recommendations would put and end to corruption as like occurring in this particular school district and others such example is this:
A Rat-Infested "Shoithole" - This Is New York City's Worst School (And The Reason Why) http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-01-13/rat-...
Placing recommendations on administration to report for classroom duties on a daily basis or risk firings would have placed this woman at risk to lose her job. "Take the case of public school PS 106, located in Far Rockaway, Queens - the school is allocated $2.9 million to serve a low-income population with 98 percent of its students eligible for free lunches. As a Title 1 school, it gets extra federal funds. There is one problem: none of that state money actually makes its way to the students, and with no class, or books, and a rat infestation, PS 106 has officially earned the title of New York's worst school."
This administrator lives in Westbury, LI and drives a BMW and when she does show it is late afternoon. An investigation is needed to ascertain where those funds are going since it appears she can own a BMW and possibly wear mink coats.
This is total abuse and if NY fires all teachers and administrators and force the above recommendations, this broad would be out on the streets prostituting herself if not selling crack in hopes of a sting job to place this animal away for life.

Never gonna happen fellas. Why in the world would you want your children taught by someone that makes 20k a yr??? That's nearly minimum wage and teaching requires a bse and a masters. 4 yr schools are at least 20k per yr so why would anyone become a teacher? Let alone smart people. You guys are inept morons. Why the f are u mad at teachers??? Cause they are professionals that earn a professional wage? F'ing morons

They are NOT professionals when they do the things they do and if each was fired they would have no other choice but accept said recommendations or find another field to earn a living. Educators today are not professionals for there are no regulations to demand continuing education on a yearly basis or renewable licenses unlike other professional positions. NYSUT goes down for corruption, these will be the only terms and thus if they want the job they will take it, if not, others may want the job. They have taken so long and many are very poor educators who walk around with a coffee cup in one hand, holding his yanker in the other yapping "I've got the power" to second grade teachers creating lesson plans to use the rest of her educational career, to those leaving school to campaign while their 6th grade students are teaching their classes or skipping out all together and leaving their classrooms without adult supervision. They are not professionals until there are changes in the way they act and slashing them right down to the knees is the beginnings to change. Andy Cuomo wants changes in evaluations, he didn't go far enough for changes.

Mandatory classroom instruction for all board members or be eliminated from the school board. Mandatory removal of board members who have any family members affiliated with said district. Removing such board members would place an end to collusion of student grades or enhanced salary negotiations such as the past librarian related to that board member getting a prime position or the student who compensates from a relative ruling the board of education.
It is inexcusable for a board member NOT to be in the classroom they run for the board only for the power NOT for the kids.
Put an end to paid lawyer such as Gerace, he can do this as a pro-bono tax-deductible position or leave. There is no excuse to collect around $90K for less than a part-time position. This should be a non paid position.
Since: Nov 10

Why stop there. Maybe we should have all teachers and administrators be volunteers. Why should they be paid at all? Maybe we could have the parents teach their own kids and eliminate schools altogether. We could close all the buildings and save thousands. We could get police and firefighters to volunteer also. And doctors and lawyers too. We should just stop paying everyone. Then we could get people like you to just decide who gets what.
Realistically, why would you expect someone with a masterís degree to work for $20,000 a year? What makes you think that teaching is not a profession? The problem with the teaching profession is that it has been dominated by women. It is still difficult for many people to take teaching seriously because of this mindset. You donít see the same situation with doctors, lawyers and engineers because these professions are held mainly by men. People will pay $75 per hour to their mechanic to fix their cars and then complain about how much teachers make. It doesnít make sense.
