There is no shame, no blame, on the five members of our<quoted text>
You are ridiculous, because teachers love to teach they should not expect any compensation for it or shouldn't want to earn more money? Do you work at a job just for the love of the job and don't care about your compensation?
Every taxpayer on this site is just as greedy because they want to keep their money and not pay additional money for a service that is being provided by the district - education. When the gas prices raise, you don't like it but you pay more, when the cost of food raises, you don't like it but you pay more, but for some reason you think that because a teacher is a public servant, they don't have bills just like you, they don't have a family to feed just like you. Teachers are performing a job and they get paid for that job. Like it or not, they also deserve to get a raise once in a while - JUST LIKE YOU!
If you are going to blame someone for this current situation then you should look to the BOE. They had the opportunity to include something for the teachers within their budget but chose not to. Now they are blaming the teachers for wanting more money when anyone looking at the finances of this district could see that after five years the teachers were going to eventually look elsewhere for employment or request more money here.
And lastly, if there is room in the budget for a strike team like Huffmasters (cost to exceed $1 million probably in 1-2 weeks) then there is money for the teachers - very simple!
Springboro Schools Board of Education.
There is lots of appreciation, gratitude, respect and support for the good leadership of our board members heard throughout our Springboro neighboods! Everybody is talking that what we want in November is what we already have found successful -- And that is the Fabulous Five that we have working diligently for us right now -Kelly Kohls, Wendy Kuhl, Don Miller, David Petroni, Jim Rigano. Our board president is simply doing her job, as elected by the people, one voice-one vote in the free election of November 2009, with the same expertise and due diligence as our SEA president is doing his.
It is just ridiculous and extremely non-professional behavior of the SEA union activists to model such poor citizenship and disrespect with this hostile word of words against the BOE, with false accusations to personally attack, distort and discredit every leadership proposal made in the board room. And it has been relentless.... just because the SEA/union activists have never witnessed BOE members "get to work doing what's right for our school children and community of very generous taxpayers!"
But, there you go again, with your tired old status quo "name-calling and bullying tactics"...still trying to indoctrinate me, a responsible spender who knows HOW to think, based on facts of Children First budgeting; pushing, shoving your agenda, trying to teach me HOW to think YOUR tax and spend way of forced unionization! Not a chance!
Here's the deal for taking! A great employement contract offer of job security, safe and comfortable working conditions in facilities located in beautiful neighborhoods, great pay and compensation/benfits packages, great kids to spend your work day enjoying, supportive parents (many of whom testify publicly how educated and wealthy they are and how they are going to take back their BOE from parents who the SEA say are less thought of as being educated and wealthy)... lol!
What say ye, SEA, you have the deciding vote -- Is it "take it" or "leave it?"
