Public Schools are at a crossroads.
An August 21, 2011 Kingston Freeman article says that Mid-Hudson teacher salaries continue to climb at an alarming rate in the face of a devasting recession economy. Our NY State Public Schools are at a crossroads. Either they freeze teacher union contracts and eliminate step raises or they will have to go out of business by laying off more and more teachers each year. This is the business model for teacher's unions in NY State. The silver lining is that after this painful end of the public schools, a new competitive School Voucher system may replace it.
