I am a parent of former Framingham students and I am appalled at the way in which the teachers are being treated!
I still live in Framingham and pay taxes here and still very much care about our schools. In fact, we have a real estate business in Framingham, so are directly impacted by this.
When my son was in first grade at Brophy, 24 years ago, there were four first grade classes. We were constantly getting letters telling us that our children, as classes, were exhibiting immature behavior and several children were not meshing well together. What did they do? They made three second grades, larger classes! Brilliant, don't you think?!! For the rest of my son's elementary years, they had only three of each class. It was NOT to the benefit of the students!
I went to the School Committee, along with several other parents, and we pleaded for the classes to be smaller, with four for each grade. To no avail!
Please, please, do not give up your fight for this!
You ALL deserve a cost of living adjustment.
You are grossly underpaid for the amount of work that you do!
My daughter is adjustment counselor at Beverly High School and I see the amount of work she does for such a low amount of pay.
I am in your corner!
