There isn't a month that goes by where schools are closed at least one or two days! What is the big worry about losing five or ten days out of the year and wreck the scheduled vacations of our "Educators"? Kids arent learning if there is no consistancy in the education process. As it is now all teachers are working a part time bases..180 days equals six months doesn't it? Good income and benefits for only six month of work. Get real..

Why is it that everytime I log onto this site JT has something negative to say about the area, the schools, or just the people in general. Be part of the solution, not the whiny populous. Seriously, no one wants to hear your rants. Help solve something, or MOVE!!!
