By: A Frustrated St. Lucie County School Teacher – shared on Florida Public Employees Facebook page

Sent to administrators in St Lucie County (School District) today… right after the district declared impasse.

I am seriously ready to just walk away from this distinct. Just walk in tomorrow and clean out my desk and go back to programming or Disney. Sixteen years means nothing next to this slap in the face.

Could they be any more disrespectful to their faculty or staff? It is very honest of them to fail to mention that teachers were offered this ONE TIME bonus along with a PERMANENT cut to benefits th…at would have cost the average teacher over $3000 a year – more for our newer teachers who also happen to be at the bottom of the pay scale.

On top of a 5 year pay freeze that allowed the board to pad the unspent fund account without making any other cuts – like the 2 million that they pay to an outside law firm or the far above average salaries our district administration makes.

I am sorry I lack the necessary vocabulary to respond with anything other than a hearty FUCK YOU to the board. Maybe I’ll be in tomorrow, maybe not. Next week is definitely looking iffy…

  1. Please don’t let our kids down because of someone who is focused on the mighty dollar. Many of those who are in charge do not have children in our Florida school system. They have not witnessed the light in s child’s eye when they learn to read or write or add or subtract. They don’t see the children who only get love and respect when they enter the halls of their school. I know I appreciate the teachers who have taught my eldest and still continue to teach my youngest. Take heart !!

  2. Wow! This could be one particular of the most helpful blogs We’ve ever arrive across on this subject. Actually Magnificent. I am also a specialist in this topic so I can understand your effort.
