VIDEO: Teachers On Funding Protests

Teachers at more than 20 Harford County Public Schools protested Wednesday, and plan to again on Thursday.

They're asking for what they say they are contractually owed.

They're not walking out on students. They're not striking.

But some teachers at about two dozen schools around Harford County are protesting this week in hopes that it sends a message. They hope by sticking to working only those hours to which they are contractually obligated, that Harford County will put more funding toward public education.

Check out the video with this post for a first-hand account from a teacher: French teacher and Student Government Association sponsor Kathleen Mader.

How can you possibly draft a contract regarding employment and benefits for 10 years and expect nothing to happen in between to cause changes in raises. Taxes and economic conditions change during that long period. Picket your union for brainwashing you into believing nothing would change regarding your benefits for 10 years when everything you get depends on taxpayers.

The teachers' contract had funding contingencies in order to pay for salary increases. Harford County didn't provide the funding so HCPS isn't obligated to pay.

It should be noted that whilst ordering papers for sale at paper writing service, you can get unkind attitude. In case you feel that the bureau is trying to cheat you, don't buy term paper from it. http://www.dogsblog.eu
