Suggests 'teachers would rather have a pay raise, too'
To the Editor:
In the July 16 issue of the Spectrum, the bold headline read "Paddyfote gives back pay raise."
In reality, a deal was struck to take 14 extra days of vacation instead of a raise. Nothing was given back. It was a trade.
No wonder the teachers refused a wage freeze. I imagine all of the teachers would be happy with almost three weeks off instead of a pay raise.
Were the teachers given that option?
Is this a good example from the superintendent?
Is this the message the voters were sending?
