It is not like corporate America, where you can offer them money. There is no extra money.I am still struggling with the idea of our class sizes going up after most of us in the village just saw a tax HIKE!!! It is ludicrous. Not to mention, as a non-tenured teacher myself in the district (a specialist) of course I am sick over the possibility of losing the job that I love. Will my program be cut? Am I safe due to the specialized nature of my job? You know, they can get rid of tenured teachers as well, if the positions are eliminated.This is why I laugh when people claim that tenure gives you job security. It simply does not mean that you cannot be let go.Boy, that announcement just really ruined my Christmas.
