"Also unresolved had been wages and benefits" --- But it's for the kids. All the other "issues" were just smoke and mirrors to get more money. The "average" wages & benefits is $92,000.

Palsar: How much do YOU value the people who educate society's future (it's kids)? You can pay babysitters, police officers, or teachers...guess which one is cheaper...

$92,000 for a job that only requires you to work 3/4 of the year...and they ask for more...amazing!

Farcical Why is it the more tax money we throw at ed the lower the test scores. Maybe the parent or parents that have kids in school should pay a babysitting fee to the school district. That might help them pay attention to whats going on in their kids life,

It always about the money and wages. I cannot believe people always fall for the its for the kids speech. The biggest salaries and worst performing schools are always in the cities. Go figure!

I should add if you want a its for the kids speech thank the private school teacher. They work for much less money and produce much better results. Public education in the cities is a scam. Must be a nice gig though to perform horribly and have no chance of ever getting fired!

Every critic of public education (especially the constantly evolving urban and first-ring districts) should take 1 day and see what goes on in today's classrooms, watching students, teachers, and support staff not only do what is expected but adapt to evolving situations. Then come back and be off3r constructive criticism. Being a smart-aleck 10, 15, 30 years ago in your homogenous classroom does not make you an expert today.

They deserve the $ they receive, given that they can no longer remove distruptive students from the classroom.
