How Bad are the Central Falls Teachers?

I have absolutely no idea.  And you probably don't either.  So let's keep this debate philosophical rather than personal.

What I don't understand is teachers making the money they do compared to the children of the families they were teaching not making relatively minor changes in their schedules to help the students excel. Why was the union so opposed to the requested changes?

Teachers have a contract that districts constantly try to push to the limit and beyond (how much do you think teachers make?). If teachers don't push back they will find themselves working for 12 hours a day for nothing. That's why.

TFT --give me a frigging break -- these teachers are making $70K a year for just over 9 months of work. Get real -- this is roughly 90K a year and they are complaining. Real professionals DO work 12 hours a day and 7 days a week if this is what it takes to get a job done Teachers are not real professionals...

din819go,

Teachers work hard for that money. They also have virtually NO autonomy, unlike many other professions. And since when is my salary tied to the salaries of the community where I teach? WTF?

Look dingo, you have no idea what it is like to teach. Did you know that many teachers have families and lives? I can't stay late at school because I have my own son to parent.

People like you dingo, who have no idea what they are talking about, make things worse.

Why don't you go volunteer at the struggling school? Huh?
