    we should farm out the cleaning service – some custodians make over 80.000 – that’s a lot of money lance

    Good suggestion, unfortunately, I believe some socialist law in NYS forbids outsourcing of janitorial etc services. Not so in other states by the way MI here I would need to check if I really bothered but I believe it is a no-go for NYS

    The MTA is deaf, dumb and blind to the fact that regular jobs in the world outside of their domain have no security, no contracts, no annual raises at the present time, and are very hard to find these days. The MTA is living in a land of delusion. Furthermore, many jobs in the “outside world” no longer pay as much as the MTA demands for their union members. And that includes people who have earned their Bachelor’s, or Masters, and even PhD degrees.

      If the Mamaroneck Teachers Association fails to see the facts of the empty stores and the houses for sale in our community, perhaps we should be quite concerned about the quality of the education delivered by our schools.

      Perhaps the MTA sees how the community fails to manage its schools and the District’s incompetence in negotiations. Then, perhaps we should be concerned that the organization that represents those who deliver education in our schools takes advantage of such failings and perhaps we should be concerned that we allow it.

      Are students learning something other than to spend what you don’t have?

    I agree wwith David Silverstone. The MTA sees this community as affluent and unburdened by the present economy. Meanwhile, most residents are just trying to remain in their homes–with ever rising taxes!

      That’s exactly right – which is why Mamaroneck Schools may be better served in the future by hiring teachers who live in their community. This used to be a common place thing years ago – today it’s cost prohibitive for the teachers to find homes in this community.

      Maybe the idea of some sort of tax relief for those who work and reside in the town is not a bad idea….

      But you are right, the teachers are not shedding any tears over the residents of this community when it comes to finances. They look at their teaching opportunities as having struck gold because of the caliber of students and the high income families. A double edged sword for the residents unfortunately…

      Of course if they are at risk of losing their jobs, then they might think otherwise…just saying…
