They have no raises with this contract which runs until 2014, some do get step increases due to more education, but not all. There will be no new raises or funds for quite a while so stop spreading this crab. I have asked this before and no one would answer... What should be the salary for a teacher?

Como's new education standards are long overdue. Now, Teachers will have to do what employees working for Corporate America have had to do - PROVE they worth their salaries!!!!!!

People that pay School Taxes that are constantly rising to pay for all the "perks" Teachers receive, are getting fed up with paying the high cost of School Tax and getting nothing in return.

Where else can an employee earn such high salaries for only working 180 days a week!!!!! What are you guys going to "demand" when our Governor makes the School term LONGER!!!!!!

New York State teachers prove they are worth their salaries everyday just by showing up to try to educate the offspring of miss informed people like disgusted. New York State teachers are subject to certification rules that teachers in other states are not. They must pass tests called the LAST, the ATSW, and a content area exam and get their masters degree plus gather 75 hours of development. So please unless you have more than a high school diploma don't make statements that show your stupidity. Oh and I am not a teacher but I work in a school. I would never want my children to have to go so far into debt just to teach.

My education far exceeds "just a High School Diploma"; my comments are based on results.

Anyone working in a professional position in Corporate America not only has to prove their worth -but- are constantly taking refresher courses or classes at college to keep up with the changing times.

Teachers need to do the same. As far as a Teacher getting their Masters Degrees, all they have to do is remain in College for another year to earn it.

IMO, it is about time our Governor has demanded a better way of teaching by Teachers that are knowledgeable, devoted, and have the skills to teach children lessons they will remember the rest of their lives.

How many Math teachers today teach their class how to add up columns of numbers by using their brains instead of a calculator? I can still do this which still amazes the younger generation.

Teachers are no longer going to be able to rest on their "tenure" status - now they are going to be tested to prove they still have the knowledge and skills to do a better job of teaching our children. It's about time..........

FYI...teachers are also required to take refresher courses, professional development as well as keep records for ALL. I currently have 78 credit hours (double the hours required for a Master's degree)...And I have my Master's degree, for a total of 114 graduate credits. Do you really think I deserve to be constantly bashed by people like you?

Also,'tenure' does not guarantee anyone a job. As it applies to educators, the term means 'due process'. Teachers can still be fired, but the district in which they work must follow certain protocols in order to do so, just like any other profession. I don't know what you do for a living, but I will take a gander that your boss can't just decide to fire you because he/she doesn't like the color of your socks.

if cuomo extends the school year,the facts are that they will be negotiated through the union. If the school day is extended,teachers will be compensated for it. If the school year is extended,the teachers will be compensated for it. Also,the administartors cafeteria taff,maintainance staff,clerical staff,bus drivers,and everyone else involved. So listen you frucked up ugly hillbilly inbread idiot, That is never going to happen because the state cant afford it. If they can then im sure the teachers and everyone else involved will be all for the extra $$$$$. As for taxpayers,teachers are tax payers to you friggin a$$hole.Now go finish your 6th grade education and leave your sister alone.

like all the jealous teacher bashers on this topic? there are also the idiots who mention names of people who work in the school district. if these people dont like it they should step up and try to change it. It they dont like the people personally they should go up t that person,or group of people and tell them who or what they dont like and why. Otherwise they should continue to put their tail between their legs bend over and try to grip it with their teeth.

Who is "jealous" of a Teacher?

We, the TAXPAPERS, that pay their salaries every year have every right to voice our dissatifaction with the entire School Board operations - which include Teachers' salaries!!!!

Teaching should be a chosen occupation for those that want to turn a child's life around and watch them bloom when they finally understand the subject the Teacher is teaching them. It has nothing to do with race - it all comes back to the way the "Teacher" uses her/his skills to teach.

I have a Grandaughter who always hated Social Studies, World History, and anything to learn about History ever since she was in 4th Grade. She could not see any reason to learn about "history" as she couldn't understand why she had to learn something that happened years and years ago. Every Summer she had to go to Summer School to re-take a Social Studies Class in order to pass this subject.

Last year, as a Junior at Proctor, she was very fortunate to have a young male Teacher, newly hired, as her Teacher for History. This young man made Class learning "fun" (in her words) and she ended up with an "A" and a new found love in History!!!!!

Unfortunately, due to seniority rules, he is no longer a Teacher at Proctor (does sub work occasionally). IMO - this is the kind of Teacher the School system should keep - not the ones that have lost all their joy in teaching.

Secondedly, Teachers are way over-paid for what they do. They only work 1/2 of a year (180 days), have Summers off, vacations when their Winter, Spring, etc. breaks occur. When was the last time you ever heard of a Teacher devoting her time AFTER school hours to work with a failing student? Most of them rush out the doors as soon as the Bell rings announcing school hours are over with!!!!!

Where is our tax money going when Proctor has such a high Drop Out Rate and the education children receive in Utica is sub-standard?

Taxpayers have every right to complain - NONE of us are "jealous" but we are disgusted with the way our money is being spent.
