I see the teachers in the Crown Point School system finally woke up to what the administration is trying to do to them. It is now time for the community to wake up to what the administration is doing to the system.

First, they passed a referendum to reduce class sizes, and sizes went up in some schools.

Second, they dropped out of the co-op to save money. They may have saved money, but now special education class sizes are bigger. Also, teachers are working areas they have never worked before, or exceptions they have no background for.

Third, they are now turning the young teachers against the more experienced teachers. If you do not pay great teachers what they are worth on the open market, we are going to lose some of them. 

I have been involved in education for more than 50 years, and young teachers and very experienced teachers working together makes the best learning in schools.

Time for the community to stand up and be counted.
