Simple solution - Stop negotiations & hire new teachers.

It appears Scotty, you did not do well in school. You can't do that. This is the real world.

Funny how everyone thinks that teachers deserve to make a decent wage until they remember who is paying their wage!

And let us not forget that most of them get their first job $30-$40K in the hole for the education they have to do this job.

Good job canton, hold your ground, in such a depressed area we can not afford to keep tax the community and handing out money like it grows on trees. If these teachers want more money tell them to pick up a part time job.

Sounds like the teachers just don't want to make less money! No brainer to me. Would you work for less pay or do hours worth of extra work for free? Think about it!

I think I ll just say, " I do not think private citizens should own guns." Should be more than 7 comments on an educational issue.

I wonder if the people who criticize our schools ever took an AP physics, chemistry, english, history or any other AP course. If you let your child take the easy way out, you know what I mean, 9 th grade math in 12 th grade for example and then complain. You are not getting much so do not expect much as a result. There are students who study several hours a day for these difficult courses. Ask to sit in on one. I know right now that I could not pass any of those courses without a lot of good solid course work before taking them. School work is hard work if you apply yourself. It amazes me that students and parents take the easy path and then expect a miracle to happen after high school. No young person I know ever took an AP class, passed it and was disappointed in their education. I have a niece who took 4 AP classes passed them all and is on scholarship. She studied long and hard to get there. It was hard work.

Yes, let's take one of the most important jobs in the world, educating our children, which quite literally shapes all of our futures, and tell the people that do it to go get part-time jobs if they don't like the pay. These are also the people that would, quite literally, stand in front of your son or daughter and take a bullet for them if needed God forbid. If you don't treat them well they will leave, and you will have poor teachers take their place. Who does that hurt? The teachers? No. It hurts your community. But hey, at least your taxes will be lower, good job.
