One Response to Bartlett Schools: Referenda and Beyond

  1. chris riley says:

    Where the financing and rules to how much someone is going to make by what the State sees as set forth in the State law I can only say is laughable. Reason why Memphis City Schools and the struggle of Shelby County Schools to keep unified is the requirements taking a lot of money out of the system that educates children. Our country has gone threw a great recession and balance of world economy has less money circulating in the system. By keeping the present pay scale, bonuses and benefits that retired people want for themselves is not available. State and Federal Government thinking of change, just don’t touch our pay. Part of wanting an independent school system should be what it is, INDEPENDENT. Except abide by the rules the State sets forward in pay scale. To abide by these rules you want to be paid, you have to follow our rules. Why we are watching National Deficit climb and everyone is standing around saying what can we do to lower it. Well, look in the bread box. The system has been broken by many people not contributing labor to keep circulation in progress. Contributors that help finance the system are no longer available.
