Pay the teachers that deserve it an FIRE those that dont. There sre way to mant tenured teachers thst should not be teaching in EB. We are falling in the rankings because we have a number of protected teachers sucking valuable dollars away from the good ones and preventing us from hiring better more skilled teachers.

The EBNJEA buys politicians, especially Democrats. See Barbara Buono's pandering to the public workers unions to get votes. The EB BOE are defacto members of the union. These loveable madcaps never met a tax increase they didn't like. Heck, I believe they even have a retired teacher on the board. Talk about a conflict of interest! I have come to the conclusion that the initials BOE really stand for " Bent On Extortion".

How can you say the BOE are defacto members of the Union when they are proposing a salary guide for teachers that are deemed unfair?
Jarhead March 04, 2013 at 07:39 PM
unfair??? How about paying 30% of your health care benefit like the rest of us whose taxes pay for their benefits! We pay in two months what they pay for a whole year, and complain every year they being punished. All this for the equivalent of 6 months work. oops, I forgot, " it's for the children".

As the cost of Health Care Benefits rises, like the rest of us all Municipal and School officials should pick up a portion of the increase. They also should be paying more for their top notch Health Care. It is too easy to stick their hands into the pockets of taxpayers. I'm tired of hearing "Collective Bargaining." Collective Bargaining has been one sided and not on the side of the taxpayer. Time to enter the real world Public Employees Christie took a tiny step to fix the problem we need bigger leaps if we are to see taxes stablize.

The EB School System should also cut some of the Administrators which make up a huge portion of the budget

Will the Patch also be posting Hatikvah's proposed budget for 2013/2014 prior to the open public meeting on Monday, March 18, 2013 at 7:00pm at 367 Cranbury Road?

Kelly, Don't worry about Hatikavah's budget. EB only pays for kids from EB. More to the point, I can't wait to hear that the EB BOE budget will be lowering my property taxes by 10% because the teachers and administrators will be paying 30% of their health care costs.
Jarhead March 23, 2013 at 04:14 PM
Surprise, surprise. The Board of Extortion announces a 2% increase in the budget. Think it would be 3% if allowed? But then again, what's a few million extorted dollars if "It's for the children"? As if the children need free health care.
