Governor talks of changing Youngstown schools to charter system

The above 2 posters make themselves sound like ignorant baffoons. Opinions are not facts. Do not speak with authority on subjects you only have biased opinions about.

Governor talks of changing Youngstown schools to charter system

OMG, those filthy bloodsucking teachers! How dare they earn 80K after only 20 years experience. Pay scales vary according to district and if you wanted to be fair you would have also looked at other districts' salaries with the same years experience. Ohio is one of the few states who illegally tie property taxes to teacher salary. It has been a dead issue in the legislature for many years. The state teachers union has tried to fight it for years. Educate yourself before you speak with authority. Back to the Canfield teacher earning $80K. That teacher has more easily paid for 2 master's degrees or a master's + 45. It takes a lot of time, money, and dedication to educate oneself beyond a bachelor degree while also working a full time job. If teachers could earn that salary right out of college, then everyone would want to teach. You sound like a bitter jealous person who for some reason hates teachers. Did they pick on you in school? You have a teacher to thank for teaching you to read and write so you could express your pettiness on this blog. Just sayin'. :)

You all sound like idiots who have the answers to society's problems. Teachers work 180+ days per year and get paid for only those days. The salary is divided over 12 months instead of 9. Days they are NOT PAID for are ALL holidays. If you work 7 days per week, you get paid for those 7 days-the days you actually work. No one is paying a teacher to stay home and lounge for the summer. Most teachers need to work part-time in the summer because they do not earn a living wage when you factor in all the time spent doing school work before school, after school, at home, weekends, and paying for supplies and food and even clothes for your children out of their own pockets. It really becomes less than minimum wage. They are not living in the lap of luxury as you all think. Instead of trying to deny them decent health care you should be fighting Congress for decent health care for everyone in the country instead of parroting the words of the right wing screwballs. Shouldn't everyone have the Cadillac health care that our Congressmen have? They are the moochers and slackers of this country, not the teachers.

How ironic it is that people who don't work in a particular profession or field of work somehow know how to solve all of the problems within that profession. Everyone not in education knows the answers to solving the problems in Youngstown schools and all of education for that matter. What makes anyone think that other school districts will take YCS students. OK, Canfield and Poland can have them. How do any of you think that will work? Withhold money? The lion's share of any money doesn't go to the students or anyone working in the trenches. Any person who is not in a position of power knows that the people who do the real work, the hard work, aren't the ones making any money. Politics needs to get out of education. Education is now big business but educating children has nothing to do with business or politics. That's why education in this whole country is a losing battle. Educators are never any part of decision or lawmaking processes. Get it?

Well, Kasich is the person who won the election. People are idiots and common sense doesn't exist in politics anymore.

Campbell sees surge in drug arrests, thanks to new PD unit

More than improving his department on drug seizures Chief Rauzan is financing his pet projects on the backs of his tax paying citizens who are ticketed and fined for driving a few miles over the ridiculous 25 mph speed limit. Wake up people. Drug seizures bring in drugs and any money seized is an added bonus. Addicts don't pay fines because they are degenerates. It's the tax paying working citizens with jobs who are bringing in the money. The Vindicator should ask for an accounting of how much of those thousands are from drugs and how much from traffic fines. I think it would be very revealing. Rauzan's ego is bigger than his sense of duty. He is not helping the law abiding citizens who drive 40 mph and get a speeding ticket -only helping himself to their money. Did anyone notice the change to 20 mph at the bottom of Coitsville Rd? Think of it as a new tax. Don't vote for anymore tax levies -maybe he'll get the message. Judge Cunning is also playing the game with him.

Campbell Police Department grows in size, occupancy of city hall

For gleekgal- I usually don't respond to rants like yours but wondered whether you might have been a special ed student. You have low reading comprehension and should avoid posting comments without backing it up with facts. Is it your opinion that 1/4 of citizens pay taxes or is it a fact that can be checked? If your statement is true that would mean that 75% of Campbell citizens pay no taxes. If that is true then one would be led to believe that our administrators have to make up the difference by just maybe taking the money from the 25% minority. No where in my post did I say that I have had to pay speeding tickets. I have not had a speeding ticket and I do drive the speed limit. You made an assumption because you don't know how to read. You are entitled to your opinion but not your own facts. When you state a fact you need to back it up with proof. Didn't you learn that in English class? The point of my post (which went right over your head) was to point out that the article implied that drug busts were bringing in all the money. Not true, drug busts bring in money that is collected at the time of the stop. The great majority of the money is made off of people like me who work and pay taxes and might be driving 40 mph on the street. Not considered speeding in my book but that is only my opinion. Glad to see that you at least attempt to read, many can't even do that- but save your posts until you can back up your statements with facts and understand what the poster is trying to communicate. It's called reading comprehension
