Computer programs are important. The world our kids will be taking over is one where 21st century skills are essential. Who could have imagined a cell phone or ipad even 20 or 30 years ago?
Arts and humanities are important. Without these programs, who will invent the next big step in our lives? We need art and music as well as physical education. We need to help those innovators become the best of the best.
Giving the teachers a new contract is only an issue of fairness. When other Borough employees get a raise, no one even notices. When a teacher who is working so hard to improve our kids lives asks for a raise, he/she is called greedy. We need to attract and keep the best teachers.
