Another NYS shell game meant to fascinate us and keep us from asking 'where's the money coming from'?? What expenditures are going to be cut? Is less going to be spread around to other social programs in order to fund this?? ALL money the 'State' gets is from us and they are constantly looking for creative ways to separate us from more, 'higher fee's' for example. How about using the approx. 80% of our school tax money that now gets funneled to the teachers union one way or another...oh wait, their being promised an extra 15k for teachers to teach teachers, the 'State' is supposed foot that bill, that's us folks. Are you still feeling all tingly and positive that this is another great day in New York?

Lets take a look at that 15k for teachers to 'mentor' new teachers. Union President Danny Donohue (csea) said the the state financing this is a great thing and this type of training is done in the professional word. Well Danny, in the private sector professional world the employer provides this training, however, the employer can also fire your****for incompetence in a heartbeat. Add that to the proposal and you have got yourself a deal.

Ishouldknow, I believe the correct term is "interim." An intern is not an interim, and youshouldknow.

I'd like to know the total cost of administering(processing, correcting etc) the 4th grade state tests...in fact, the total cost of any state tests given to elementary students. I did a search, and checked several websites but didn't see any figs.

@laker - and you will never be able to figure out that cost because no one wants you to. I would imagine we would be disgusted. Public education is a mess because teachers have these contracts were they have to be compensated for everything little thing they do and the high paid administrators give in to their every whim. Public school are a mess and the Administrators still continue to keep their jobs even though they CLEARLY can not manage anything. Too many of the teachers they are in charge of our their weekend pals. Look at Fonda; an outside auditor had to tell the board they over spent last years budget and now mid year cuts and 2 long time employees are losing their jobs, sports has been reinstated along with a "secret" deal with the teachers association to save a "special" teacher. Its a joke and my child will spend her senior year as early admit to college to avoid this school. Regional schools can't happen fast enough to help us taxpayers.
