There are some here with the opinion that we should "stop the talk about teachers’ hard work and stressful environment". people who speak like this do not have a clue. As the spouse of a teacher in Shrewsbury, I see her teaching in a classroom with more than 25 students in a room meant for 20.
Without the help from parent volinteers it would be an impossible task. When the school day ends and she returns home, there are papers to correct and then preparation for the next day. Drive by any of the schools on a Saturday or Sunday and you will invariably see teachers cars at the school. She deals with young children who are the future of this town. She takes this responsibility seriously as do most of the wonderful teachers in this town. Maybe it is time to start the conversation about the budget at this level and at the same time give our teachers a lot more credit for what they do. View Comment
