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

On Long Island,money for education has become money for educators.
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....

VOTE NO TO TAX HIKES May 19 @ H.S.  ..... the schools have more than enough money for the program
