School Results: Tuckahoe Is Only District On South Fork To Reject Proposed 2012-13 Budget

Bubby your a moron no profession I know pays you more just because you took extra credits. I would love to take some college courses so that my garanteed salary would increase. But in the REAL WORLD where we are not protected by unions that's not possible and again why does it cost more to educate fewer students than 15 years ago, answer inefficient management and bloated payrolls. People who work in school districts pay way less for better benefits than most people. And when everyone leaves LOng Island except the illegals and the teachers who will be left to pay their salaries. You just don't get it. Getting paid 100 plus a year for 9 months work and a large pension is breaking the back of Long Island. Stop circling the wagons and try to solve the problem." May 21, 12 3:10 PM

Thanks Cheif that is what I've been saying all along. I value teachers as much as the next person but this system is extremely bloated. By the way a teacher with amasters in say history wouldn't even get an interview for a job in the real world. END of discussion. Time for a few summer fundraisers for rich people nonsense." May 22, 12 1:08 PM

Lets pay everyone 200k with lifetime healthcare and 100k pensions at 55 if you think that will garantee a great education you are sadly mistaken. When you cannot lose your job or EVER have to worry about a pay cut why would you have to worry about doing a good job. 122k for music teachers and 110k for gym teachers please. Circle the wagons school union people." May 23, 12 2:05 PM

Go to Southampton or Easthampton and count the amount of Lexus's parked there and then tell me they don't make a ridiculas amount of money. i don't see too many Intel or Siemens finalist coming out of the east end, but thank god we deflect the educational shortfalls by concentrating on culural tolerance and community liason people. Continue to circle the wagons louise." May 24, 12 1:51 PM

Southampton School Officials Consider Eliminating Valedictorian, Salutatorian Designations

It sounds more like the SD doesn't want to take accountability for most of the students who really don't do well in Southampton compared to school districts west of there. Maybe by eliminating class rankings we can all feel better about ourselves and they fact that SH spends twice the LI average per student but doesn't get very good results." May 29, 12 1:46 PM

Remsenburg Man Implicated In LIRR Retirement Scandal

Lets put them all in prison. Stealing when your getting a great salary , benefits and penson. The only way to stop this to take their penson away and put them in prison. Too many public employees scamming the system, no one is watching and there is no accountability." May 30, 12 1:22 PM

Southampton School Officials Consider Eliminating Valedictorian, Salutatorian Designations

If we eliminate the validictorian and salutatorian then all the school childred will not have to strive for anything and the overpaid teachers/administrators won't be have to held accountable for thepoor job they are doing. Great idea just give everyone pass/fail. At what point will the education levels in the this school improve ? Is it 35k spent per student maybe 40k or 45 why not spend 50k per student. This school district is doing a great disservice to the community. More money less results and low exspectations(sic)" May 31, 12 2:45 PM

You guys are morons. It's about the inefficiencies in these school districts. You are spending twice the LI average and getting poorer results. There is a system inplace where no one can be fired automatic raises which mean automatic penson increases. The taxpayer has had enough. What do one think about a county wide school district. I garantee no one would want it no matter how much it saved because then you couldn't control your school district. It's all about the childred oh excuse me it's all about the teachers and administrators." Jun 4, 12 2:14 PM

Earnie that was the most intelligent and accurate view of the situation. Gold star for you. Thanks" Jun 5, 12 2:11 PM

Why don't we do away with some administrators instead?" Jun 6, 12 1:50 PM

Tuckahoe And Southampton School Officials Discuss Exclusive Tuition Deal

But in SHSD they teach tolerance and acceptance instead of academics. Now that they are discussing eliminating class rank they can then fall into total mediocraty and not have to be accountable to anyone. Again please explain why it costs twice the long island average to provide a poorer standard of education. SHSD is not and has not been doing it's job for a long time. its about education ,education and education." Jun 11, 12 2:11 PM

Tuckahoe And Southampton School Officials Discuss Exclusive Tuition Deal

Did anyone see the article in Newsday yesterday about graduation rates, regents diplomas and percentage of students attending college. Westhampton charges less than SHSD and always scores higher in all these areas. Why would you want to send your kids to a school district that charges 33 percent more tuition but consistently delivered less results? What a waste of money. SHSD and EHSD spend more than anybody but always deliver lower scores and graduation rates. Where oh where is all that money going? Please feel free to informs us school administrators."

Southampton School Policy Sub-Committee Recommends Elimination Of Val And Sal

You have to be kidding me. Southampton school district which is so far behind so many districts in its acedemic performance will now make it easier for people to underachieve even more. Now everyone can be the same and there will be incentive to work hard.This all sounds Obama's plan for America. Do nothing but get all the benefits. Why don't you peolple try to do your jobs and push education not excuses." Jul 25, 12 1:32 PM

This way they don't have to show any results or be compared to other districts. SHSD and EHSD spend twice the LI average per student yet consistently score lower on all standardized tests. These school districts are inefficient and ineffectual, but at least they teach social tolerance. You are not preparing these students for the outside world. 99.9 percent of the world is not like the fantasy land of the hamptons. These schools are NOT doing thier jobs. Get a backbone and try to EDUCATE not placate." Jul 26, 12 1:24 PM

Deferred Action Program Will Affect East End Dreamers

Illegal, illegal and illegal no matter how you slice it,they are here illegally. I have zero issued with people coming here legally but why do I have to pay the full cost of my own kids to go to college and subsidize someone else's who are here illegally. Stop bleeding for every poor sob story. Come here legally pay taxes and then you may enjoy the benefits that accrue to people that are supported but working people's taxes. WHY do I have to support people on welfare and illegal aliens by working 14 hour days. We have to stop being soft on everything. You drink you drive you kill someone you go to prison or at least you should. Anyone who is for the illegal getting benefits I suggest that you take a family in to live with you and then you can pay all thier expenses." Aug 2, 12 2:06 PM

Apparently nature can't read and comprehend too well. It's not about one individual it's about the situation in general. Why do i have to support and pay for services and an education for someone who is here illegally and at the same time pay for my own kids to go to college. It's not about one seventeen year old girl. I have compassion so using some of the reasoning here we should allow everyone who wants to come here, come. Then we will be paying for services an educating 10 million or 50 million more people. Where does it end. Remember socialism implodes when there is no more OTHER people's money left to pay for those who don't pay for anything. It's not racist or radical or homophobic it's about quality of life. I don't work hard to better the people who come here illegally or those who game the welfare sytem, which is rampant. I work to better myself and my family. Stop spending my money on people who have broken the law." Aug 3, 12 2:19 PM

What if this girl was 5 would you all say she can stay and the parents go. You can not judge each individual situation because nothing would ever get done. Simple obey the laws on the books, if you don't like the laws elect people who will change them. I'm not aracist, I simple don't want to pay the way for people who don't pay taxes SS etc. It's not a republican or democratic thing, it's a cost issue. I should not nor do I want to support every illegal who comes to this country. I'm paying for their eduction and health care and I DON'T nor should I have to." Aug 7, 12 1:48 PM

Tuckahoe School Officials Ask Lawmakers For Help, Painting A Dark Financial Future

Everyone is right and also wrong first off the teacher assesments costing 45k is not to blame that's 1/3 of one percent of the budget. It's probably 1/3 of the pension that some administrators get. Richly undeserved as they are the one partly responsible for the mess. Ineptitude should not be rewarded. Anyway yes added immigrants are part of the problem we should not be educating giving healthcare and foodstamps to people who are here ILLEGALLY. Come the proper way documented and with papers as the law says and I have no problem with that. Secondly as I've said many times before WHY does it take twice the LI average and almost three times the state average to educate kids on the east end. It's runaway administrative and teacher costs. When everyone's house went up in value every year until 2008 no one noticed or cared how much the schools spent. people take a look at other districts and compare to the east end. The cost are so out of whack it's not even funny. mattintuck spends 15k per student southampton 31k. Where oh where is it going?" Dec 4, 12 2:04 PM

Southampton School District Officials Do Away With Val And Sal

I have a great idea how we can make everyone equal. I hink we should determine what the average salary for a teacher and administrator is in the state of New York and I know i's probably half of what these blowhards in Southampton make, and that i what they should get paid, lets see 50k for a teacher and maybe 75 to 80 k for an administrator. We will cut the budget in half and everyone will be equal. Then no one will have to try hard and the real world will embrace all the same way. The east end is fantasyland when these kids get into the real world they will not be able to compete or handle anything I hate to tell you all something your NOT special like mommy and the therapist told you and when you go to look for a job the head of personel won't care either where your from. They will want to know if you hav the education and skills nessasary to do the job. Sorry but that's the way it is and you all better wake up and smell the coffee." Dec 4, 12 2:14 PM

Again I like to see all the teachers and administrators in this overpaid district take a paycut so that they will be equal to everyone else in the state. Now that we have eliminated the rankings and everyone is equal then since the expectations for all the students are the same then it will be easier to do "thoe very difficult and costly" teacher evaluations. I guess every teacher will now get an A because they have lowered the bar so low.Circle the wagon union people circle the wagons and worry about yourselves as usual" Dec 5, 12 12:28 PM

Tuckahoe School Officials Ask Lawmakers For Help, Painting A Dark Financial Future

What does any of this have to do with the inept idiots running our schools? Focus on the problem. Why does it cost 18.5 million dollars to educate 300 kids. Lets add in all the kids in SHSD and WHSD so maybe 500 thats over 30k each. Mostschool districts on LI do it with 15k per student. If the government can tax me and then give to those who are lazy,udeducated and unmotivated then I think they can set school salaries how about 75k tops for teachers and 100k for administrators. Set by law like the governor and president. Any comments from the teachers union would be welcome but we all know what they will say, don't we?" Dec 5, 12 12:35 PM
