Westhampton Beach Teachers Reject Proposed Salary Freeze

Unbelievable. It's leadership at the union level like this, who give unions and subsequently teachers a bad rap. Lesson learned younger teachers, a majority of your union does not care about you. Community members take heed, your teachers care alright, about themselves. Meanwhile, you have "dinosaurs" who should be retired, making WELL above $100,000 still teaching and who do not have to contribute any amount to their retirement (Tier I and Tier IIs). Not a bad gig teaching 2-5 classes / day / 180 days/ year. " Mar 20, 13 11:20 PM

i guess if you disagree with the union position you have "no idea" and you are unkind. No one is questioning how hard teachers work, you are missing the point. Times are tough for everyone, except apparently if you're a well tenured teacher in WHB. " Mar 20, 13 11:23 PM

You're assuming they did the right thing. They have a responsibility to ensure a teacher is given due process and provide a thorough investigation before handing it over. Whether that was done sufficiently is yet to be seen. " Mar 23, 13 6:57 PM

UPDATE: No Restraining Order Issued Between Westhampton Beach School And Killoran Family

Inclusion out at WHB. Sorting and selecting in. Will the administration know consider bussing out their gifted and talented kids too? Chapter 740 of the Laws of 1982 defines gifted pupils as "pupils who show evidence of high performances capability and exceptional potential in area such as general intellectual ability, special academic aptitude and outstanding ability in visual and performing arts. Such definition shall include those pupils who require educational programs or services beyond those normally provided by the regular school program in order to realize their full potential."
