Kingston & Saugerties Schools are failing. Please Complain!
We are really on the decks of the Titanic in NY State and in particular, the Kingston & Saugerties School Districts. The violins are playing, the teacher's union continues to demand and get raises, pensions, all expense-paid benefits....WHILE graduation rates continue to fall (minus 4% in Kingston and minus 3% in Saugerties) and our young adults and college graduates continue to be unemployed and continue to leave Ulster County and NY State. We are in the midst of a disaster, while our school officials continue painting a rosy picture and continue with policies which are harming both students and taxpayers. What are we taxpayers and students to do? Raise your voices, complain every day. Make phone calls to Cahill, Lopez, school principals, school board members, every day. This will work, if enough people complain to the people in power both locally and at the state level. Please complain!
