Jane and I comment on the Teachers vs. the Board in the recent negotiations. My position was simple-heres a period of time for both sides to get together and settle the deal over the summer. No deal–it starts costing BOTH sides per day–1000.00 per day. After a week it goes to 5000.00 per day-and after that it doubles per day. The kids should not be the ones who get penalized and most of us know that it is not the teachers working in the learners best interests nor is it the board. For the board–do they have to pay the teachers if they are not working? There is never a guarantee of retro pay as part of a settlement–not should there be.
