Today, Hazel Park was inducted into the National Socialist Party Hall of Fame. Ceremony led by Superintendent Hitler and his cronies: the Third Reich School Board.
Teachers fucked. Their families fucked.
Good old Hazel Park.
Not just cutting salaries but fiddling around with their insurance benefits. One of the once-upon-a-time alluring beauties of teaching…the benefits. HA! While the Superintendents are sitting fat in their offices, twiddling their thumbs and picking their teeth with toothpicks made from shredded insurance cards, extricating pieces of meat left over from their “lunch meetings” where big decisions were made.
No votes. No nothing. They decided that further negotiations were not necessary and their National Social Regime Board concurred. All hail democracy!!!
CUT. 3% from the State of Michigan and 2% from Hazel Park. PLUS…now…we have to pay for part of our insurance.
$800/month in total (at least) EIGHT. HUNDRED. DOLLARS.
We have 5 children, braces, clothes, food, and a mortgage. WTF are we supposed to do? Yes, I’m working. As much as I can, picking up various jobs.
This was IMPOSED. These men and women who went to college to dedicate their lives to educating our children… What a wonderful way to repay them for all of their hard work and devotion.
Screwed. With a chainsaw.
The teaching staff? They can’t be very happy about this. I guarantee there was no cheerleading section made up of teachers with pom poms, kicking, cartwheeling and rah-rahing. I’m certain that they were shocked that the negotiations were ceased due to the simple-minded National Social Regime Board. Oh how challenging it must be to do the puppeteers bidding…
The teachers that showed up to this Socialist school board meeting and were told what fate was being forced upon them. They had to go home to their spouses and families and figure out how they were going to survive from here on out.
One of the Superintendents decided to be a martyr (so we’ll call him Stephen, the first Christian martyr), stoically offered to be the lowest paid of his profession as he gave up the same 5% as the teachers. A halo is waiting for him in heaven. Gag.
Coincidentally, democracy was out in full force at a neighboring district. Teachers were issued raises. Wha???
Sadly, the Hazel Park district will soon witness what it means to “get what you pay for” when staff morale is next to nil. The students will be affected. Inevitably, our country will be affected.
