So we are all saying that it does not matter what we pay the very people who are molding our future generation. Come on people, you get what you pay for! Sure teachers in other school districts are paid lower and their results speak for themselves. Either we should negotiate in good faith and come to an agreement or fire the lot and hire replacements. Then we can let time tell us the results of our actions. We all want more but are all unable to give more.

Pragmatic Idiot-That's the issue. The Neshaminy teachers are paid very high and are some of the highest paid public school teachers in the United States and even in lower bucks, yet most of them can't teach, are not good teachers, and as a Neshaminy graduate I know this for a fact. Neshaminy teachers pass way more students than they should and are not good at educating their students in things that really matter unless of course it's the PSSAs.

NFT deleted their facebook page! I guess they can't handle any criticism or the truth. ;) I have been a substitute teacher before and I also would accept this contract since it would mean that I'd be working and teaching fulltime! What these teachers don't understand is that in other districts like in Bristol a lot of teachers there were fired and laid off. In this economy the Neshaminy teachers should be grateful that they even have jobs when most people myself included do not or are working a part time job just to barely get by. I agree with you that the whole idea that the teachers who are against unions are being blackballed is criminal. The NFT is full of greed. The Principals at NHS are a joke as well, they were when I graduated more than two decades ago and they have been the last few decades. Neshaminy claims it never hires their own graduates but that is not true. People who I graduated with went to college or a university and came back and got hired in Neshaminy! Of course they all were related to other teachers, school admins, or other people in neshaminy. Yes most Neshaminy teachers are in it just for the money, benefits, and summer vacation. I know some teachers who told me how they got "burnt out". I guess they don't like teaching at all or working with students.
