Subject: Priorities vs. Rhetoric
It’s all about priorities.
No one becomes a teacher in the hopes of becoming rich, but that doesn’t mean teachers take a vow of poverty when they enter the profession. Sweetwater manages to pay its educators a livable wage while maintaining school support staff because they make it a priority. Tell the Superintendent that San Diego students deserve the same.
The budget is a list of the school district’s priorities. If the priorities are safe and appropriately staffed schools, then the budget should reflect that. It’s easy to talk the talk. The budget is your opportunity to walk the walk. Change your vote and tell the Superintendent to come back with a budget that isn’t balanced on the backs of educators and school employees.
It’s not a choice between layoffs and concessions; it’s a choice between priorities and rhetoric.
