This article discusses the NYC schools where 1500 teachers are paid their full salary to only teach some of the day and then spend the rest of their day on union activities. In this group there are 40 teachers who work only one class and then spend the rest of the day on the taxpayers dime working on union business where they are also paid by the union. How is this not a conflict of interest? And based on the examples in the article these are some of the best paid teachers in the city. One specific teacher they use as an example makes $100,000 a year to teach one class a day plus an additional $50,000 by the union. Now that is overpaid, no matter how you slice it! How do negotiators let things like this happen? I wonder if these negotiators are former teachers who moved into administration? That would explain some of the sweetheart deals. Talk about corruption.
