Quote:
The agreement comes with the school district's previously proposed 3% raise, 4% increase in health care costs and included the long-battled column movement pay for 2,500 teachers who earned masterís degrees or engaged in professional development courses.
CCSD agreed to pay for the column advancement for teachers who completed the requirements. The compromise was that CCEA didn't get them to pay for last year's salary freeze or this year's pay deduction.

Meanwhile, class sizes are out of control, supply budgets are non existent, schools and their technology are outdated, and students have no access to curriculum for any subjects. Neither side fought for the interest of the students, rather to fatten their own pockets.

So what is your solution? Should teachers take less pay so we can hire more teachers? Have more supplies? More technology? I don't disagree with you, but what do we do?

I say we cut pay from the top to pay teachers fairly and fund the school district as a whole.

LAUSD fought last year for class size reductions, reductions in standardized testing, and increased support staff.

Ruin it more. Things have to get far worse for people to care.

Public schools are no longer about educating children.

Well then, the raises and concessions should help do that then. Seems like a good thing then.

People don't care. You nailed it.

Those that do can't get enough support to push past the idiots that make decisions regarding education. I hate to think how bad it will get before anything is done, if ever.
