Terrie Brady and DTU stick up for veteran teachers

A few weeks back, I was told something may be coming, and Terrie Brady yesterday confirmed it when she asked the district to renegotiate on behalf of veteran teachers, many of who are about to take a pay cut.  

To be honest, I don’t think it should have come to this. The district has money extra in reserves and is saving money from the referendum. They didn’t have to throw veteran teachers under the bus. That was a choice they made.  

They also could have read the room; with the new stimulus package DCPS is scheduled to get a hefty sum, and with the Democrats winning Georgia, states and localities will get their aid preventing budget cuts.  

Yet despite this, the district thought at least in the first go-around @#$& over people who have dedicated their lives to the children of Jacksonville was acceptable. 

All that being said, I am glad Terrie and the Union haven’t stopped fighting for us and have requested to reopen negotiations in the hopes of getting something done. 

Now we just need to work on fair planning across grade levels and about a thousand other issues.
