Vince Lombardi's Fedora regarding Staff shuffle has MCHS in position for savings
Tripleplay...REALLY? You REALLY think parents wouldn't frown upon their kids being in school at midnight and/or on holidays? I have a bridge I'd like to sell you too. Those who feel that, on the average, teachers are overpaid have never walked a day in a teacher's shoes. Like every profession, there will always be the few who make more than others but most teachers aren't rolling in dough. Every job has its perks. Those who constantly speak out against the perks teachers enjoy could have had the same perks had they chosen to become teachers. But they didn't...and now the jealousy oozes. Sad...
tripleplay regarding Staff shuffle has MCHS in position for savings
wrong ortiz, we dont have kids in school on midnights or holidays, not because "parents would frown upon it", but most likely because the state doesnt allow it. Since when did the parents make up the school scheduling? i understand teachers need to make up their teaching curriculum but its not like theyre busting their buns each non-student day from 8-4 trying to figure out what to give lil' johnny for homework. Most teachers deserve their pay but not anymore, or less, than the next hard worker.
Saratoga regarding City forced to play with ideas for a new park
If it's the land on the Northeast corner of Rt. 6 and Ashton then I think it's a great idea. This would allow the kids from Rockwell Estates to walk over and use it too. It makes sense to get most out of the money and it would be located right in between the subdivisions. I'm impressed with the City's vision - if this is the property I'm thinking of?
Craig Ortiz regarding Staff shuffle has MCHS in position for savings
I think everyone recognizes that school schedules are unique. We don't have kids in school on the midnight shift or on holidays because most parents would frown upon that. Many parents prefer that their children have summers off for sports, travel, or work. However, schools do not shut down for the summer, which is why some employees have a contract of 10, 11, or 12 months. There is work that must get done even when kids are not there. Everyone has benefits unique to his or her position. Some people have the potential for overtime/holiday pay, working from home, company vehicle, etc.

But remember real one is allowed to state his/her opinion also - same 2nd amendment. real one has the opnion you are incorrect - perfectly good opinion. I tend to agree with him also. On the whole - there are many issues not being handled correctly in Dist 54 - my opinion. have a good day

am I not free to add my opinion? to state I'm wrong about my opinion would mean that I am not entitled to have an opinion. perhaps you should speak for yourself, just in case you are wrong about what other people think. you don't get to cast my vote.
