The saddest thing about the school budgets, at least here on LI, is the taxes are guaranteed to be increased year in and year out (On my small 1960s house the school portion is already hitting 10k- not including the county taxes) and the kids and parents are held hostage. The contingency budgets always harm the kids, no sports, closed libraries, no art programs, etc, but leave the teachers and adminstration harmless. They never talk about reducing perks or the upper 100k salaries that are common here for teachers let alone the 300k salaries for superintenents, increasing pension contributions, etc. Something needs to be done. It is becoming unafordable for regular income people to afford to stay here.
