Sweet, our budget has increased every year too! If we double the rate of our budget increases then we can double the rate at which our school rankings are dropping also!!!! AWESOME.

What a surprise. Of course LS has the highest paid teachers, AND THEY TEACH ONLY 4 CLASSES INSTEAD OF 5 THAT ARE TAUGHT BY THE REST OF THE TEACHERS IN THE STATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Of course insiders will tell you that teachers do other "important things" instead of teaching the 5th class. Where are the performance measures to monitor these "important things" that they claim? There are none, because it's basically a sham, and it's an insult to teachers in other towns who put in time above the 5th class. Sure, there are LS teachers who work beyond their 4th class, but it's light duty compared with teachers in other towns who teach 5 classes and put in additional time. This is nothing more than a freebie to the union. Why don't they have the decency to call it what it is, instead of masquerading some "important things" sound bite? The fact is that teachers all along have had an unbelievably amazing deal at LS, paid for by taxpayers, and yet the insiders keep demanding more overrides because they are fiscally incompetent and refuse to manage costs. We also used to give them the best healthcare deal in the country until the state forced them into a GIC-like plan. The insiders have done an amazing job fooling taxpayers over the years and disguising all of this to demand overrides. Now, school enrollment will drop significantly, yet costs continue to shoot straight up. Why?
