Golly. Who would have guessed that holding the line on spending on education is so awful? The teachers and adminstrators should be receiving their percentage increases and step raises while the general public average income decreases. I love their ability to join in and accept the plight ofthe taxpaying public, don't you?

Supervon, I am a U employee, a tax payer and I haven't seen a raise, and my income has fallen, due to furlough, for the past 4 years. But I guess living in poverty isn't plight HUH?

apotter4511 - Are you a teacher there or part of the staff? Plus, I bet your retirement/pention and healthcare benefits look pretty good as well. Look at the administrator-teacher ratio trends over the last 30 years and much will become clear....
