The Road To Chichester Teachers Contract Is Paved With...

In the midst of contract negotiations, the Chichester Education Association takes out an ad to make clear that they have offered to take pay freezes for two years and blasts the school board for giving the impression that they haven't.

Leading the president of the school board to say:
“It is absolutely true that the CEA approached us first, and that the full freeze would have saved us $800,000, which is a very advantageous number for the problem at hand, but we also needed to calculate the reality of where the next year is going... In our statement, we tried to give a snapshot of where we were and where we are now, and to say to our community, here’s where we ended up. We know that our teachers are the glue that holds this district together, and we know they have nothing but the best intentions for our students.”
They're the glue all right. As for their "best intentions" more people need to see
