RESTORE The Baldwin Schools Program...... IMPROVE Student Achievement.....
      REWORK The  Collective Bargaining Agreements

On Long Island,money for education has become money for educators.
Public school educators are inflating & eviscerating public school budgets.​
The Baldwin School District has limited resources. NY State has limited resources.
      The  excessive salaries & benefits  of teachers & administrators have resulted in larger class sizes, program cuts, supply cuts, extracurricular cuts, delayed capital repairs / tech improvements, transportation cuts &  excessive school property taxes.       Money intended to enrich students is diverted to enriching educators.

New York   .... 1st in educational (mis)spending, 20th in educational achievement nationally  ...
      USA.... 1st in educational (mis)spending, 30th in educational achievement worldwide ...

Understanding Your School Board Members (the typhoid Marys)

Karyn Reid,
Karyn Reid, teacher
The teachers' association electoral support was immediately reciprocated. Uses our low wealth residents to cudgel the state for more money.... ....taxes our low wealth residents more to hand over to her well off educator colleagues...

​​Lots of teachers were handling out campaign literature to reelect Ms. Reid.  They'll be repaid well in the new contract.

  Ms. Seniority... The Original  UFSD # 10 "Typhoid Mary"s:
  Mary Jo O'Hagan

   Mary Jo... tax hike hypocrite
             ......she doesn't like to pay the piper.....

    Susan Cools....    recently elected

  Annie Doresca...   a fiscal watchdog with no bark,  her financial degree is only useful as wallpaper.   Annie turns her blind eye @ school district financials.
     A fifth columnist for her spouse/teacher ... students, buildings & program are the lowest priority. She runs from a full time mid-Manhattan job to 7 children@ home and sprints thru her responsibilities on the school board. 
      Its a fast paced blur of a nonentity doing the minimal.  She laps the field in worthless  padded resumes.  Her multitasking only allows a Rosie Ruiz contribution to the marathon of school district responsibilities.
