If administrators would change the Pension system to a Defined contribution (from defined benefit) there would be more $$ for education. Pensions would stop sucking the life blood out of the taxpayer's school contributions!!! Do you know how much of your school tax dollars go to pay people who are not contributing to YOUR child's education?! Pensions are a thing of the past. Long GONE are the days when teaching was an undesireable career. Make the change, improve education!!!

Can someone explain how this is the fault of the teachers??? What about parents teaching you do not steal, and 2 of these people are over 40 and 3 are not from Rocky Point!

There was a meeting last week. Someone wrote about the meeting in the local voices column of this and it is now a news story.

I'm all for pension reform, but the teachers have nothing to do with this. I would have to agree the home environment is to blame more than anything else. Blaming teachers for kids getting addicted to drugs...quite a stretch there. Kids are often addicts because their parents are addicts. How about keeping the kids off the damn xbox and playstation? Staying on top of your kids schoolwork and making sure they complete it instead of wasting hours on facebook? Why would any parent allow their kid to have a facebook page is beyond my comprehension. It's amazing I grew up and became a successful, normal person without an iphone, ipod, facebook, twitter, etc. It's sickening to watch what's happening to our kids. People don't have their priorities straight and want to blame someone else.

The teachers are not making the really big money and collecting the exhorbitant pensions. It is the administrators who are getting exhorbitant salaries and adding their sick time, vacations and other perps to their salaries to increase their pensions. Teachers are not permitted to do this. The administrators are making more money than the President to oversee the education of a few thousand students. This is what needs to change. Instead of criticizing civil servants for what they are getting, you should be advocating that everyone have these protections. We are far below standard in every developed country in the world. Perhaps if there were less stress just to get by, parents could do better - the problems are far ranging and not simple and the ones who are suffering most are the kids and unfortunately, they are turning to drugs and emulating what they see on television and among the sports figures and entertainers they admire.
