After reading that the govenor wants teachers to work for free to keep schools open, I just had to write him and my legislators. Actually, my district will be okay and won't be cutting days this year, although we have in the past. Still, when many of our spouses have lost jobs and the only income is our salary, I believe it's a passing the buck gesture. Let's have the senators and representatives and the like come and educate our sweeties without pay. Don't forget that they should be held accountable for the high stakes testing too! I don't mind working for low pay and taking a pay freeze (actually over the past 13 years that has been the rule not the exception), but that is my choice and not government's!
