Students take to the streets

Roxbury students are expected to demonstrate early tomorrow morning outside the high school in favor of passing the school district budget on Tuesday.

We wonder if any counter-protesters will show up to demand that teachers, who are scheduled to get a 4.7 percent raise next year, will take a wage freeze.

    The attitude of the teacher’s union can be summed up as follows –
    Give me more, Give me more,
    My annual increase of percent four.
    You can’t afford it, I don’t care,
    Reopen my contract, that I dare.

    Write something of interest already!

    Try something along the lines of “Democrats are Smart if they like Healthcare” or “Obama is loved by everyone.” Whoops, you have done that over and over again.

    The reason why many of them protest is because they are not told the whole story. The real story is our state is broke and there is no money right now for raises etc. The protesters will run out of steam when they start paying some of the tax bills. Free lunch is wonderful as long as others are footing the bill!

    They should go march around the unemployement office in Dover they would get a real dose of reality, not the propaganda they get from their teachers.

    Did anyone ask the kids if their parents had lost their jobs or experienced a wage freeze or decrease, and if so, why did they think that teachers should be receiving substantial raises when a lot of taxpayers in the community are in dire financial straits.
