East Providence will be forced to be next to do the same (massive layoffs)if the teachers get their way!

Why are the teachers always to blame? You never hear of West Warwick in battles over pay. How come the school adminstrators are not being laid off? There mismanagement and overspending has caused much of this.

Do you have any idea wht the impact of laying off adminstrators is?
How many admins are there compared to the number of teachers.
It would probably take 2 mid-level admins to equal one teacher. The equality of numbers just isn't there.
I don't blame the teachers solely. I blame the union first. Their demands are what has forced this. Next I blame the teachers for letting the union bring them to this point.
All I can say now is, that you only have youselves to blame. Had you made concessions, like we all have to in this economy, the layoffs wouldn't have been needed.
It seems that the concept of "brotherhood" was left at the door. The union has always said that they are there to protect the union brothers. It seems that we now know that this is not the case.
I'm sorry it has had to come to this but unfortunately, teachers are not immune to the effects of a down economy.
East Providence will likely be next. The Labor Board ALWAYS sides with the unions. If they do, there won't be pay cuts, but union brothers will be pounding the pavement.
Old Mother Hubbard Rhode Island has gone to the cupboard and it truly is bare.
