This article made me laugh. I live in the South and all we have been hearing from the oil refineries is that hurricane has done nothing to impact oil production and transport, including shutting down refineries. This is a crock.

I would like to point out that I work in a non-union district in a right-to-work state. We pay substantially for our health insurance and other benefits and have not received a step increase or cost-of-living increase since 2008. In addition, we have had 3 furlough days for the past 4 years (Some districts around me had as many as 8 furloughs), and increased class size. We are the perfect example of doing more with less. However, we have experienced NO layoffs and our district is financially sound. Do you think this would have happened in a union district? Hell no.

Pavlansky says that Issue 2 is no good for students. On the flip side, how does a school district going on strike, causing students to be taught by unqualified subs or missing days, even weeks, of instruction during the regular school year, benefit students? It doesn't. I love when people use "think of the children" to further their cause.

RustOnMyBelt, as a teacher who does not get collective bargaining, I would say my $61,000 annual salary for 10 years of teaching is WAY above what most teachers in Ohio with the same experience and education receive. Even when you factor in cost of living, I still make more. Additionally, being a non-union district, we don't go on strike. Now tell me, how does striking benefit students? It doesn't. Striking is only meant to benefit union members, no matter who gets screwed over in the process.

Where I live, we are a right to work state, which means no union. THAT promotes productivity because if you suck at your job, you are gone. Additionally, our schools are non union and the buildings are constructed using non-union labor. Surprisingly, our buildings are much cheaper to build and take less time. All unions do is protect crappy workers from losing their jobs. My sister was a salaried employee at Lordstown and used to tell us how many people should be fired but cant because of the UAW.

I would hardly call a stolen wallet a violent crime, neither is shaking your head on camera.

Seriously Brown, you dont think this type of stuff happens on other college campuses? I NEVER felt unsafe while I was at YSU and I often took evening classes which meant I was walking around in the dark. Crime happens at all colleges, not just YSU.

What are they doing with the rest of the $5000? We just purchased 28 Mimio's at a cost of $13,400... If they are only getting four for $5000, they are getting ripped off. (And no, we didnt get a discount for ordering 28.)

The district I've been working in has been doing the team model for many, many years. I cannot believe it has taken this long for districts up there to catch on. You work on a team of 4 teachers, and the students only see those 4 teachers. Makes conferencing and interventions so much easier.

What, do you expect them to work for minimum wage? Police deserve to earn a decent living.
