"Elizabeth Forward school budget holds line on taxes"
http://www.post-gazette.com/local/south ... 1505270269
Granted, the article is nearly two years old, but you must admit. If teachers were receiving another automatic pay raise, taxes would be through the roof.

The shoe is about to be put on the other foot, we'll see how the teachers like it.

This is a photograph of Arizona House Majority Leader John Allen (R):

He's of the opinion that "Teachers Should Expect To Work Second Jobs And Have Lower Salary Expectations."
I, for one, happen to agree with him.
Enough already with the unabashed GREED.

Someday, somehow, the taxpayers are going to pay for the pensions public sector employees enjoy. In the case of teachers, the day of reckoning has been pushed down the road as far as it can be. Delay just makes it worse.

Teachers are up in arms, from Betsy DeVos, to President Trump, to their crybaby complaints about how they're taking another pay freeze. Taxes went up 7%, so it looks like these bloodsuckers will be in-the-money until the next automatic pay raise. When will it end?

Is it true that two married teachers receive a yearly reimbursement of $7,500.00? I heard the district asks that one teacher be put on the healthcare policy of the other. When that happens, the district saves $15,000.00. But instead of keeping the money, they give half of it back to the teacher who has agreed to be added as a rider on his / her spouse's healthcare benefits. It was recently argued as to how much this strategy "saves" the district.


It doesn't.


If someone had a brain in his head, then he would have asked - early on - as a condition of employment: "Hey! Since your spouse is also a teacher, would you mind being put on his / her health insurance?"

No. Instead, the district reimburses the teacher to the tune of $7,500.00. That's what I call piss-poor management. Don't tell me. Another district kow-tow to the teachers' union. Disgusting.

Actually, no. If 2 teachers are married and share a policy, there is no extra money given. If one takes their spouses insurance when they work for another company, then they get the money. It's in the contract if you look at it on line.

I beg to differ.
Can you specify that contract language?

It's DEFINITELY true. If two teachers are married to each other, and both teachers work in EF, one of them can opt to be put on the health insurance coverage of the other.
Net results: (1) No loss of coverage by either teacher. (2) The district will reward the teacher who gave up his / her coverage. (3) The reward will be money. (4) The money will be half of what it costs to insure one teacher. (5) The district keeps the other half.

Here's an example:

Teacher A and Teacher B are married to each other.
Both teachers work in EF.
The cost to insure both teachers is $32,000.00 ($16,000.00 per teacher).
The district asks teacher B to be placed on the insurance of his spouse (teacher A).
One would think the district is now saving $16,000.00.


Not so fast.
The district saves only $8,000.00.
Where does the remaining $8,000.00 go?
It goes in the pocket of teacher B, who presumably "gave up" his health insurance.
In reality, teacher B didn't give up anything at all.
In fact, he became a profiteer to the tune of $8,000.00.

Once again - piss-poor management.

Pochahontas is on the war path in this video, about "Trump and DeVos."
She rips them.
What she fails to realize is that her diatribe against education budget cuts are the very reasons the majority of Americans voted for him.
One of the facts she cites is that the President and the Education Secretary want to "roll back student loan subsidies for low-income income college students."
Heartbreaking, isn't it?

These folks have my blessing, and they have the blessing of tens of millions of other Americans who watched the American Public Education system go down the drain for the past 50 years.
School choice can't come soon enough.
