Kathleen Ruegsegger, you are a very powerful writer and a voice of reason thank you for your calm presence on this and many other threads.
I'm a teacher in this district and I must share my concerns anonymously, since there are many in our community that would hold my beliefs against me personally. I have two children in the district. I love the profession I am in. I also live in Pleasanton. I don't believe it is right for us teachers to receive any pay increase during this economic crisis. In fact, I believe the correct course of action is for all certified employees to take a 10% pay cut, all classified employees take a 10% cut and all administrators to take a 20% pay cut. Administrative perks need to end. This will be a starting point for correcting our path. It takes bold leadership lead. Who will be that leader?
A teacher who loves Pleasanton and will be voting No on G next Tuesday.
