Teachers Take Fight To Youtube

Posted by wlpo on September 30, 2009

In a video posted Wednesday, 20-year teacher Debbie Riordan-Turner says “right is on their side” when it comes to the stalemate between teachers and the school board. Riordan-Turner calls the board’s one percent salary increase offer “unacceptable” saying it doesn’t match what’s happening at surrounding school districts.

When it comes to health insurance, Riordan-Turner says the board is asking teachers to contribute over 2,000 per year for family coverage which means salary decreases for some teachers. She calls it unfair.
