East Hampton School Board Slated To Adopt $64.2 Million Budget Proposal On Tuesday

"employee salaries and benefits account for roughly 75% of the budget proposal". It is time TEACHERS pushed back against their own union which is eating its own. Do teachers really want to lose even more faculty support services which have to be cut to feed their pension and healthcare entitlements? There is a balance which the Teachers Union is unable to find because its their way or no way. Teachers should stand up for the next generation and not be so short sighted." Apr 16, 13 7:10 PM

UPDATE: Elizabeth Lindtvit To Replace Rebecca Molinaro

Unbelievable. Still, if locals don't show up to stop this kind of abuse, its going to continue to happen. Since when is a CLERK worth $60 an hour?" Apr 25, 13 12:11 PM

Perhaps things like this happen here because it has become a sport to watch these messes unfold, and then complain about them. Go Village Board! I can't wait to see what you do next to infuriate the people you (supposedly) serve." Apr 26, 13 6:53 AM

Westhampton Beach Middle School Teacher Pleads Not Guilty In Riverhead Court

I agree with you Lizfoley. It is unbelievable that this man has so many defenders when there is evidence his face was on the actual video, setting it up. I have heard people around town - mainly OTHER TEACHERS, defend this man to the hilt. They will not hear of his possible guilt. That, more than anything, disturbs me. How far does the teaching community go to defending its own?" Apr 30, 13 12:03 PM

Police: Substitute Teacher For Eastport South Manor, Hampton Bays Districts Had Inappropriate Relationship With Student

People need to stop defending teachers when transgressions like this happen. A post related to this story previously seemed to blame the student. It is indefensible to apportion any blame to the student. Teachers have the duty to restrain themselves, period." May 10, 13 6:51 AM

East End Voters Decide On School Budgets, Board Members

Parents who bemoan the cutting of real day to day educational services should actively oppose the stranglehold the teachers union has in schools. Further, teachers should be outraged that their union has brought the educational system in this country to its knees. When will teachers stand up and initiate change which will in fact help educate the children they are always saying they care so deeply about? The reality is they look out for themselves first. They are not a special breed. Teachers would rather keep children out of school to fight for a pay rise. Teachers would rather lose key educational support staff than pay a little towards their own medical plan. This is the reality. Until taxpayers and enlightened teachers stand up to the teachers union, it will continue to bleed everyone dry and the standard of education in this country will continue to fall.
