This afternoon, teachers in the Carmel-Clay School district protested outside Woodbrook Elementary School. The teachers gathered at 3:15 p.m. in response to Monday night's school board meeting in which Assistant Superintendent of Business Affairs, Roger McMichael, unveiled the district's proposal for utilizing the $12 million referendum. The teachers protested for fair pay and argued that the plan left no money to pay teachers fair wages. In addition, they are unhappy with the handling of leaves and professional development.
Carmel-Clay Schools has often been noted as one of the state's top-performing school districts, - a fact that teachers argue may change with good educators leaving for school with fairer pay. When writing about area school's performance grades, I heard from many parents who expressed concern for the state of education in the state. I would like to hear from readers. How do you think our local schools are performing and what is your opinion of school budget cuts?
