Re: “Bethel deal reached; board to vote” (TNT, 8-19).
Once again the union and teachers in the Bethel School District have shown their true colors. It’s not about the children; it’s about the money.
Their latest contract takes money away from children and gives a 1.9 percent pay increase to mitigate the 1.9 percent pay decrease the state took. Unfortunately, state workers had a 3 percent pay decrease, but do not have a “children’s fund” to tap into.
