Keep funding the over bloated teacher salaries and retirement. Lets face it...the utica school system blows. Any family with means has already at least left for the suburbs if not for an entirely new region. What's left in utica? The bottom of the bottom. They don't embrace education as a whole what so ever. Even the slight few who do and end up in college (usually out of the utica area) are finding jobs upon graduation out of the region. Essentially the utica school system is just a factory that produces very few if any qualified job applicants for the utica area. Couple that and an extremely low quality of life and little job prospects in the utica area...who can blame those few for leaving. I say cut the budget even more....save the money and invest in something to enhance the prospects of bringing people to utica...not just educating a few who leave anyhow.

. So why do you care? If you hate Utica and teachers so much. Teachers get what they deserve and are still underpaid! Jealous bastard. You should have been a teacher. You can read & write, right? Thank a teacher.

Think of it this way.

A factory (the utica schools) produce a product (students). The product (students) is a failure yet the workers (teachers) are still paid the same or more.

It's not the teachers fault. They do the best with the students they are given. Three quarters of them can't speak English and the other one fourth couldn't care less about school. These kids are not like we were. It's a whole different ball game. Quit trying to blame everything on the teachers. I wouldn't want their job.

If they believe they're underpaid let them go to another district. The product they are paid to produce is not working.

And you pretty much have given even more reasons to decrease spending on the school district. With the kids attending those schools you could have 9000 teachers or 90 and the product and end result would be the same for utica. The unsuccessful students are just that and the successful ones leave the area.

Many of them don' t do the best they can. Some teachers just don't care, don't try and simply sometimes they don't know how.

I wonder when the last time a family MOVED to utica for the school system? I see it where I am now. A family will move here so their kids can go the Shen. Happens in new Hartford. Happens in Clinton. Fairly sure it doesn't happen in utica.

Cut the cess pool down to the bare minimum. Anyone without tenure? Axe them. Those with tenure are required to work summers. Weed out the fat pigs. If they don't like it set up shop somewhere else. The school district is broken. It's not producing educated kids who establish themselves in the community after graduation. It's not the teachers fault it's just the talent pool is not there so why keep dumping money into it?
Until utica comes up with reasons for people to stay in utica it's just a waste of current taxpayer money. Cut and dried.
Agreed.
