    • I could go on and on but the fact is, that whole "work-to-contract" thing left everyone with a very bad taste in their mouths. While teaching is a noble profession, and if were easy, everyone would be doing it, but the fact is, the teachers in the Neshaminy District are already among the highest compensated in the country. No company in America pays 100 \% of the health benefits for their employees anymore. Sadly, that is the reality of things. Quite frankly, there are some excellent instructors at all the schools involved, however, there are some who are more concerned about the politics of things than making sure the kid's needs are being met. Firing all the teachers is not really an option, but thinning the herd may not be a bad idea based on class size and anticipated enrollment. The teachers, the school board, and the parents all need to work together so that a fair and equitable settlement can be reached. One that won't foster resentment by either side and allows everyone to move forward.

    • Fully behind you-Health demands are out of touch with the real word. Pennsbury and Council Rock teachers contribute to their health costs. What makes Neshaminy teachers so different from their counterparts in other Districts?

    • My husband has not had a raise in 6 years, his is going to be getting a pay cut and my healthcare insurance will be rising next year for our family. We are not in any position to pay for someone elses health benefits.

    • Stay the course, we can not afford their demands. Before I retired, I paid about 30\% towards my health plan. Teachers need to get in touch with the real world. Neshaminy School Board stay strong....don't give in

    • Rescind the offer - no raise - no retro - 25\% healthcare contribution minimum - there are a lot of people who would love to have a job at that offer.

    • I trust that the board will negotiate a fair contract with the teachers union, but one that does not raise taxes.

    • as a taxpayer, and without getting any raises in salary in 5 years,and paying for my own health and pension , I feel the teachers need to realize where the money they WANT will be coming from. I would like to keep living in middletown but every year my take home,spendible money is less and less. keep firm and don' t give in. thanks

    • Thank you board for standing up for the taxpayers of Neshaminy. Now we need to take the deal off the table. Start from zero and healthcare must be 20\% plus, no retirement bonus, no 7 hour work day. Teachers should quit insulting the taxpayers and wake up to reality. Private companies have required large health care contributions for years and many have instituted pay cuts and had layoffs in the last few years. Normal corporate work weeks are 50 hours and 2 weeks vacation if you are lucky.

    • I can not believe the selfishness and greed of the Neshaminy School Teachers. I know there are a lot of great teachers in our school system but they need to realize, these times we are now living in, everyone is sacraficing.

    • I think all of the teachers should be fired. Then, an offer made of: we will take you back on, but you must first work in the Philadelphia School District for six months before coming back. No raise, and pay into your healthcare benefits. I haven't had a raise in 4 years, and pay 20\% for my healthcare coverage for myself and my children. Get a grip, Neshaminy Teachers!

    • Please do not waiver in your resolve. The community cannot afford higher taxes. Everyone contributes toward their health care today and very, very few are receiving raises.

    • The NFT told the school board that in negotiations all interested parties should come out with something. They get pension increases. What did the students get? When did taxpayers EVER gain anything? Both groups are certainly interested parties!

    • My support lies with the school board. The economy is in a recession, and teachers should not be the only people to be exempt from the effects of it. The school board has enough public support that they should be able to achieve what they want.

    • The union needs to stop playing games and focus. Completely behind the board. We definitely have some great teachers in our district. However the district only has so much money. In this day and age with our economy what is fair to the union and what is fair to the rest of the real world don't seem to be the same. Board please help bring the union back to reality.
