First, no one is asking for teachers to take a 20% pay cut. At most, I've heard of negotiations proposals that ask for teachers to take on an additional teaching assignment instead of a prep period. In one of our previous contracts, the teachers agreed to a 15 minute extension on the day. Similarly, you'd think the School Board was demanding capital punishment when you heard the outcry.
Nobody wins when you blatantly exaggerate like this. Especially if you're of the opinion that the upper tax rates are way lower than they used to be, and lower than they should be.
