|Oye! Me pelucaron ! (Yikes, I've been scalped)|
In light of the economic pressures currently bearing down on our public schools, it's time for a strong show of leadership. This includes leading the fight to retain as many of the personnel & services which impact the classroom directly. It also includes a certain amount of self-sacrifice on the part of of our two Superintendents. Such actions would definitely be good for morale. Also, Supts. Santo & Nelson would probably get a great deal more support and cooperation if they voluntarily cut back their salaries. Even their taking a 5 or 10 percent cut would send a strong message to the rank and file that all employees, across the pay scale are in the fight together. Failing to do so, will certainly lead to increased criticism and unrest if and when teacher cuts actually begin.
