Randi says.. NY Teacher that we now measure up to the suburbs in terms of time and pay. Thanks to James Eterno for the heads-up on the ICE blog. It's less than encouraging that our president, after having negotiated the very worst contract I've seen in 22 years of service, appears ready to rest on her laurels. In terms of time, ICE cites several examples showing we work 7 days more than many suburban districts.

What about pay?

The following, according to NYSUT, as of January 05, were Nassau maximum salaries without a doctorate. Assume that by the time we reach the much-lauded 92K max, they will have gone up several points, as they do every year. Assume also that they will not be accompanied by the draconian givebacks our crack team of Unity negotiators were able to come up with. You may also assume they will be on time, and unaccompanied by years or months of zeroes, unlike those Unity relentlessly sells us.

Most require 60 credits beyond the Masters, which I believe I have, and I assume you would get if NYC paid. Some districts below have not yet cracked 100K, but unlike NYC, they’re on their way.

You can subtract a few thousand if you want to see MA + 30. Still, since we haven't even got the option of MA + 60, it's remarkable and outrageous that our president would say we're comparable. Furthermore, most of these districts offer several thousand more for a doctoral degree, yet another option we don't have.

And if I, a lowly teacher, can get this info, why on earth can't Randi?
