Re: Fight for every kids’ right to wrestle in Huntington

Where are these much talked about vacancies? I checked the WV BOE website that list vacancies for each county and only found a handful of counties that have any teacher vacancies posted. Are they posted somewhere else? Or where is the number from? Thanks A lot of them are filled by longterm substit...

Re: Link to email Putnam county superintendent

If you want to get his attention, call his office. You probably won't get to talk to him, but his secretary having to answer 20 calls per hour will make her mad, and no super can withstand the wrath of an angry secretary.

Re: Fight for every kids’ right to wrestle in Huntington

1. It is not a strike. It is a walkout. Teachers will not show up for work on Thursday and Friday, but will return to work on Monday. In a strike teachers do not return to work until the labor dispute is resolved. 2. I was told by a person who was at the meeting that the state wrestling tournament a...

Re: 9th graders that will be a force next year??

If high school is having such a hard time filling lineups why not allow middle school kids who are good enough move up. I am sure that will do wonders for the middle school wrestling programs. I'm not saying all the middle school kids but the ones who are talented enough to start should have the ch...

Re: Teachers strike

My entire immediate family has PEIA. My wife has a state job and my daughter and her husband teach. One issue is the cost of insurance, but another biggie is their pay. The one offered was not going to cover the cost increase in insurance premium and actually put teachers further in debt. Being 50t...

Re: Teachers strike

Most people have no idea what a piddling little increase the 1% and 2% that is being presented by legislature is. To put it in pure economical terms, a 1% increase results in $5 more per week in take-home pay for me. Since I only get paid for 48 weeks (no, teachers do not get paid when they are off ...
