School systems across the state are bracing for serious budget cuts in light of Georgia's expected $2 billion revenue shortfall due to the sagging economy. State tax revenues and corporate tax collections are down.
These problems are not just here, it is nationwide. Money is tight, and sadly the education of students will suffer. Not because they don't have fantastic teachers, but the teachers are doing more and more, spending too much time out of school working, just to get everything done, and they are doing this for low wages. Teachers are doing the best that they can, and when issues come up, and you need to vent, please make sure you have the facts and are venting about the correct people. Teachers don't need to be harped on any more, just let us do our job and make these kids productive.
Ok funny you should say that since you do work
with Transportation program as well as Nutrition program, so how are you gonna feel when you have no income coming in and how would the handicapped and elderly feel about not getting to eat or socialize because of people like YOU!!!!!!!!!!
Let's start with the supplements paid out of Pike Co. funds (not state funds) for Duncan and his friends: Duncan $52,691, Tanner $27,100, Carter $33,530, Gray $58,250, Kirksey $49,031, Huffstedler $53,503, Thompson $50,492, Scott $18,741, Maddox $16,960, Fluker $11,822. There is $372,120 right there that can go away. If teachers make a maximum supplement of $1075, then each person at central office can make the same thing!
