Ridgewood EA teachers protest

BOE – stay strong. The teachers are unreasonable. Might not have this opinion if it was a different town but Ridgewood has always been very supportive of teachers and education as illustrated by the pay scale. We just can’t and don’t want to afford to indulge them any more. Note: Rankings are slipping … time to reconsider a lot when it comes to our schools. Some new blood might be a very good thing. Please move on if you are not happy with what our BOE is offering you.

Teachers remain completely unreasonable and are not negotiating with our volunteer BOE in good faith. Time for higher pension contributions, higher copays, and salaries growing less than the 2% property tax cap. It’s time to wake up to the reality faced by all residents of Ridgewood, not just your “la-la fantasy world” union rose tinted glasses greed.

It is time for teachers and there arrogant union leaders to step in to the twenty first century and stop livening as though it was the 1950’s where you did not have great pay and benefits. BOE say no to these people the taxpayer is fed up.

  1. Pretty much sums it up, if they do not like it then go elsewhere.

  2. $102,000,000 per year is enough.
    Support Ridgewood Taxpayers.
    If you want to keep your Cadillac medical plans you need to pay part of the cost.

  3. And for the many, which includes our teachers. who feel that we are still top ranked, please compare the number of National Merit Commended and Certificate of Merit students in past years with what we are experiencing today. Those are true national figures and are not slanted in any way but one. Each local area is compared with other areas. By that I mean if you have a lot of schools that consistently rank highly (like NYC with all its’ private schools) the score to be ranked will be higher than an area with not as many gifted schools –and that includes the Northern half of NJ–we can’t compete with all of NYC private. It is probably true that magazines might not be completely accurate but National Merit scholarships have survived over well over 60 years, at least, as a fair measure of school’s abilities to produce high achieving students
