The "massive expensive building" was in the works way before the crash. It would have been completed way before the crash, but people like you fought it tooth and nail for years. If our lovely BOS had the guts to approve the advertised tax rate last year we would be in good shape.
I can't speak to how many computers were purchased for the new high school. That might be your only valid argument. I know there were a bunch of ipods purchased that were certainly unnecessary. HOWEVER, you are sadly mistaken about the schools increasing benefits and and giving pay raises. Employer contributions to all benefits have been decreased, causing much higher deductions from employee paychecks. In addition, there have been no pay raises in 5 years. Last year we received a tiny cost of living raise to offset a new Virginia Retirement System contribution which we are now required to make. Most of us still ended up with a net pay decrease in the end.
I don't know why I'm wasting keystrokes trying to explain any of this to someone like you. You obviously don't want to hear facts because you are more interested in spreading lies.
The only lies being spread are by teachers trying to line their pockets at taxpayer expense. I guess this teacher didn't get the memo about lying about the lipids each student was issued!

The Fluvanna Taxpayer Association continues to ferret out the truth and expose the lies and reckless overspending of the teachers in our school system. Read their expose in this weeks Review showing how Fluvanna school have the third largest spending among school systems!

I am not a teacher. I am a teacher aide making less than $19,000 a year. Yep, I'm really lining my pockets at taxpayer expense.

You, sir or madam, are the liar, not me. However, since this thread is obviously only being read and commented on my your lying cronies I am no longer wasting my time posting.

It is only 33 teachers! It is not like the world is going to end. So a teacher has to grade an extra paper or two... no big deal. Frankly they should have trimmed back years ago and saved us all some money.
And before all the bleeding hearts start whining about 33 poor unemployed teachers, I see that Walmart and sheets are both hiring. Of course, the teacher might actually have to work for a change, but at least they will have a job and it won't come out of our pockets!

they should not give one dollar of tax money to these schools, parents should have to pay for their own children to go to school and for the roads and buses to get there! taxes should only be used for wars and deporting illegals.
Amen to that. Except I think the money should be used for anything other than the schools. If you breed them, then feed them!

I drove by Carysbrook, Central, and the middle school around 4 this afternoon. There was not a single car in all 3 parking lots! Teachers too lazy to stay after and help kids or grade papers?!?!

No kidding...I get to school at 7:45, which means I drop my kids at daycare at 7:30. You bet I'm going to leave work at contract time to get my kids. I'll put in my time to spend 2-3 hours grading/ planning every night after my kids are in bed. My students come in for help in the mornings or during my planning, or during lunch. If they can't make it at those times, we make arrangements for them to stay after And I have to get my husband to take off work early to pick the kids up as there are laws that dictate how many hours you can leave your kids in daycare. I'm sorry, but I'm not going to leave my kids in daycare for that many hours. I love my students, but I will not sacrifice my own kids for yours. I feel like I'm doing that enough already.

And again, I'll reiterate like I have on this subject before... welcome to the rest of the working world. Do you think the rest of us put in 40 hours a week? Just like you, we have responsibilities outside of our jobs, but somehow we make it work. Personally, I probably put in somewhere between 50 - 60 hours a week. That includes evenings and weekends. You teachers think that you're the only ones worked to death? Then you complain about cuts... what do you think the rest of the working world has been dealing with for the last 4 years? Business thin out the ranks, but yet the work has to get done. I think most of you guys wouldn't survive in the non-public sector if you had to...

You are such an a -- ss. That post was not someone whining because they have to work hard. It was someone having to defend themselves from the ignorant MO RONS of the world who think that teachers are somehow overpaid and underworked. They are overworked and underpaid - yes just like many others. But they are so frequently targeted that they often feel like they have to explain it to the ignorant MO RONS of the world.

So yes - yet another MO RON in the pile - you work hard. And so do teachers regardless of what anyone think the F -- ing parking lot of a school looks like.

I would love to put in 50-60 hours a week! According to the records I am keeping, last week I put in 87. The week before that, I only put in 64.

Why a teacher would read and comment on this post where most posting are illiterate rednecks piggybacking on their neighbors wifi is beyond me.
I guess it's fun and interesting to see how uneducated failures of society communicate.

I do not even know why I am responding, but in my defense, it was spring break so in theory, I was supposed to be on vacation and not working at all. I will never understand the hatred for teachers or the myth that we stop working at 3. Posts like yours make me realize that we really should only work contract hours, but also the importance that we contine to work about twice that.

Why do you even teach? Spoiled kids. Demanding or neglectful parents. Uncaring administration. Punishing testing. Dropping pay. Hateful public. Why do you put up with it all?

Teachers put up with it because of the kids. My students are fantastic and I love being able to teach them every day. I love watching them grow and learn. Yes, they do have their moments, but don't they all. As of right now, the joy I experience with them is worth the other crap we put up with. However, the balance is shifting and I'm not sure how much longer that will be the case.

Teachers teach because of the overly high pay, full-time pay for a part-time job, no accountability because of tenure, and the opportunity to spread liberal lies and indoctrinate children into socialist lines of thought! You get paid well to spread the lies of evolution, the new deal, and conservation, and kick religion out of children's lives! Ask to see the textbook Fluvanna uses that has a picture of Ronald Reagan dressed as Satan! Watch them try to cover it up!
