Slow news day. Another attack on public employees. Yawn.

A terrible shame. Our daughter just spent two days in their care after being rushed there with a serious condition that turned out fine. Her fare was superb, the staff was excellent and caring, and we more »

Rondo sat on the bench nearly every game during his rehab. He could have avoided that. Give the guy a break.

Everyone at DESE will soon have to pay for their own truth detector test. That'll raise a few bucks.

Great article, unfortunate topic. And to think how this is to be encouraged further by our state's decision to take in a few bucks at the expense of human misery. Are we that desperate to avoid an hon more »

Charlie Anyone can write and post here. With the beauty of anonymity one can say anything. So my question is, on what do you base your statement that Boston teachers are the highest paid in the coun more »

Thule. I am sure you know dozens of teachers who are unsatisfactory. I am sure you always know 'dozens' of everything whenever you are looking for a counter argument to anything.

Fifteen years ago State aid amounted to 31% of the School Department's budget. Today, it amounts to 14%. Therein lies the problem inasmuch as the city has exhausted all of its ability to raise its own more »

Teachers do not get paid for a snow day. Where on earth do you get your misinformation?
Posted 01/30/2014 09:22:44 EST
Yes. Now answer my question. What is the basis of your assertion?
Posted 01/30/2014 08:46:34 EST
Nat, Teachers DO matter. That's why those who know the children, their families, and their community best ought to be the folks who teach them. Every teacher currently at each site has been hand picke more »

Mitchell Chester and his group HAVE been running the school for 4 years. The plan in place at both since 2010 is a plan that is state-endorsed and approved. It was created under a joint resolution com more »

We had this exact conversation four years ago with these SAME two schools. Teachers were replaced. What's more, as part of the restructuring in 2010, the state gave both schools complete authority to more »

Who knows less, Mike Arnold or Sam Tyler? Hit 'like' if you vote for Mike, 'no' if you vote for Sam.

Chill, all. It's just a story.

Quite an arrogant piece from the Globe, which obviously wants the new mayor to listen to it, not the poor, unknowing masses who elected him. This, BTW, is the same Globe that has lost 90% of its valu more »

If MATCH's exploitation of 150 college-trained 'professionals' is a sustainable model, then God help us. The tutors aren't volunteering for $7500...we are subsidizing them w food stamps. Harmon says i more »

WDBOYCE--Good point on Kiley-Anderson connection. Good for their business. On the Globe....typical. The Globe publishes Tom Keane a few times per week, yet makes no mention that he has a financial int more »

I know many teachers. Ms. Kiley's opinions are shared by a very small minority. The union is an open organization and overly democratic. The union membership saw through Mr. Connolly even if Ms. Kil more »

Connolly was perceived as a candidate backed by business interests who want to privatize public education. Walsh was seen as a person with greater vision. Connolly can cry all he wants now, but the fa more »

Larssonmt. I am sure it was fulfilling and no one says it wasn't. The point is, you were being taken advantage of and SHOULD have been paid a living wage. No professional-- in fact no one-- ought to r more »

Headline reads 'Some chafe.' It ought to read 'All but one chafe....' By the way, if this is how MATCH seeks to 'professionalize,' then all professionals are in big trouble. Lastly, there was no menti more »

Yes, I think there was no coordination, as coordination is illegal.
