  • Fed Up With Teachers

    We, the taxpayers are FED UP with teachers constantly crying for more and more and more for only 9 months a year. 75% (3/4) of our property taxes are “SCHOOL TAXES” !!
    MAny of the property owners DO NOT HAVE (medical) benefits, yet the teachers have many many & multiple benefits (to name a few: medical, vacation, sick, personal, maternity, snow days, every National holiday – PAID)
    SUPPORT CYBER SCHOOL !!

    • Fed Up With Teachers

      Check out the PSSA’s scores, ratings (State testing), the students are failing the testing, thus showing the teachers are NOT teaching, soooo why would you (taxpayers- as the people whom pay their salaries and many “cushy” expensive benefits) give teachers (failing employee) a raise and/or more benefits !!
      Would Wal-Mart give an employee not doing his/her job a raise ??

    The teachers do deserve there benefits but they became teachers to teach students look at all the students suffering from this strike. I understand both sides of this strike but I thought becoming a teacher was to be about the children and what they learn. This strike should have a compromise so the teachers can get back to teaching students

    THE FACTS ARE IN PA NEWSPAPERS, READ THE LEGAL SECTION, SCHOOL DISTRICT TAKES LIEN POSTION, ON POOR SENIOR’S HOME AFTER DECADES OF CONTINUING PAYING RISING SCHOOL TAXES, THE SENIOR PLUS ALL TAXPAYERS, FINALLY HAD ENOUGH !!!

    Support Millville Teachers in their strike, Come to a board meeting in support of them to get kids back to school!!

    I love how all these people are commenting that these teachers are not entitled to any of the benefits they are asking for, how many of you know any of the facts concerning this strike besides what the media posts? Most of the comments are from people who never attended college and do not have continuing education like these teachers do. I am not a teacher and I support the teachers on strike. Don’t comment against anyone unless you specifically know what is going on. Do you think a teacher wants to walk up and down on a picket line when they could be starting their year just like the students. Most teachers my kids have had have invested a lot of time into them and are not in this field to get “rich”.

    I am wondering why would people from scranton area be commenting on this strike? You have no idea what is going on in the Millville District!

    • Larry

      Probably because unfortunately we have a great deal of experience with teachers strikes in the Scranton area and because of the PSEAA union the tactics employed by the teachers are pretty much uniform across the state.

      • Patricia

        that is you guessing that though. I know there are facts in this strike that are not uniform with strikes across the state. I am just saying don’t run down teachers in a particular strike if you don’t know all the facts!
