And, by the way, does anyone realize that Oswego teachers still do not have a contract for this year? The school board has kept this very, very quiet. Can you say "Geneva"?

I haven't taken the time to read through all of the comments, I stopped at the point where the discussion turned into they make too much money vs. how much do you think they should make vs. how much should a doctor or lawyer make. A doctor or lawyer or you or I 9 unless you are in the public sector) are paid from taxpayer money. Administrators and teachers are paid by tax revenue. So the question really is if you feel they are underpaid, how much more do you want to pay in taxes to support their paycheck, yes we could find savings by cutting, but we never seem to agree on what to cut or how much to cut.

I mistyped, i meant to say that a lawyer or doctor not in the public sector is not paid from tax revenue as are teachers and administrators.

I'm way behind on commenting here, but wanted to say thank you to Mr. Hallahan. My now 16 year old was in your class a few years ago. You've impacted his life in a very positive life changing way. I'm thankful you chose to teach.
