Stop overpaying school employees

  • In Belmont, as in many Mass. towns, school employees are among the top earners in town. (A coincidence that the Teachers Unions are funding 97% of the opposition to Question 3?)
  • Teachers’ pay continues to increase when many other departments — not to mention most private sector employers — are cutting back.
  • Once teachers, who make up the vast majority school employees, are hired, they’re locked into a grid of so-called steps and lanes. That grid dictates how much more tax money, state and local, will be required each year to pay for government schooling in Massachusetts.
  • Without passage of Question 3 and the reforms it would finally force Beacon Hill to implement, unfair and unsustainable teacher and administrator increases will continue.
