See there my teaching and union friends. Wade has you where is wanted you, and planned to have you, for the last ten months. Instead of working with admin back then to voluntarily make some controlled concessions, now you have to take his lead and give things up that will never come back. It is call being over a barrel.

I warned you of these dangers and now you have little control and little leverage power. All the reforms that community leaders have been talking about for the last three years will come closer to becoming reality fairly soon. Too bad your union leadership did not partner with admin and community leaders to have some voice in the changes. You would have been better off if you had. You have been played like a fiddle!
PS_Make certain Wade is giving up his perks & that he starts contributing to his retirement along with other admin staff. It is only fair.

This article can be translated into four words: new levy in 2013.

And all they will need to do is threaten to cut some programs and they will get enough idiot parents voting yes on it. Never mind that 85% of the budget is salaries and benefits.

They knew it all along...listen to ol' doc Lucas and how he would say they hoped this would last 3 years, but we don't know for certain with all the state funding issues. He was making the bed for the next levy and the community bought it hook, line and sinker!!

It's all about the kids baby!!!

So nice to see you respect other people's opinions...which are usually right. You must be the playground bully who calls people names because you don't have the intellectual capacity to debate facts.

You mam/sir are really the "miserable idiot"!
