BREAKING NEWS: CSSU releases information on teacher contract settlement

Officials at Chittenden South Supervisory Union released detailed information Wednesday night regarding the tentative three-year teacher contract settlement. According to the information provided, eligible teachers would receive a 2 percent salary increase for the current 2010-2011 school year. Raises would then increase by 3 percent in the 2011-2012 school year, and another 3 percent in the 2012-2013 school year.

While salaries will increase over the next three school years, teachers will pay more for their health insurance premiums. Each year, teachers will increase their payments from 13 percent to 15 percent by the end of the three-year contract.
Check out this week’s article, “CSSU, teachers union reach tentative agreement,” for background of the nearly 16-month negotiation process, and look for more information in next week’s Observer.

    I am writing in response to Mr. Hoxworth’s article on transportation costs for the poor in Vermont. I would like to suggest further research on this topic before we simply just give another handout or tax credit. The poor, may, have a higher disproportionate burden on their transportation costs than the wealthier residents of Vermont; however, they also have a lower disproportionate burden on taxes and housing. Pick your evil.
    We can simply just give every poor Vermonter an energy efficient car, gas card, free tuition, renter’s rebate, etc.…but the only way out of poverty is through the combination of education, hard work, and discipline. Education and degrees are not handed out or purchased; a person has to EARN them. This seems to be the only way out of poverty—sorry, there are no shortcuts.
    If we continue this trend of enabling, our entire state will be a welfare state.
