    I think it was a wise move and I am fine with the decision. There is a big conversation to be had all over the world in regards to religion and science. We have to learn to co-exist. It is going to ge more »

    I will log my complaint at the ballot box. Not that any of the GOP candidates were any good in the first place but this independent just decided to vote against the GOP across the board. Unless you ru more »

    Unforgivable. I may have to boycott the Red Sox now. When you don't invest in your best talent, you deserve to lose. Watney was my favorite Red Sox. more »

    Question #1: Was terminating Coughlin and Bouris in the best interest of students in Arlington? Answer: an emphatic no. I worked with Chuck and Stav for almost 10 years and I can say, without hesitati more »

    I wonder if you might have more attentive or active students if your curriculum or teaching style was more interesting? I know many teachers who are dull and boring and I would probably be sleeping, t more »

    What is wrong with education is not teachers or the way they are evaluated. It is politicians mandating this and that without properly funding this and that and without helping to make sure that teach more »

    For the record, both Bouris and Coughlin have impeccable records and were both widely respected and loved in the community. They still are. Certainly even the most loved public servants have dissentor more »

    Lots of misinformation here. What exactly did the two beloved and decorated educators do? There was no evidence to suggest that either of them did anything wrong. There were some emails that if taken more »

    FYI...update, Coughlin won his arbitration on all 5 counts. more »

    What will they say when Coughlin wins his arbitration...better think quickly... more »

    Manny, I don't understand your logic? The AEA has NOT been funding this. They funded a one day arbitration on Coughlin's lead teacher position, that was a grievance that existed prior to Coughlin's fi more »

    Fact - the AEA has paid for Coughlin's share of the arbitrators bill. They have not paid one dime of his attorney's fees, not one dime for subpoenas, not one dime for the enforcement of a subpoena whe more »

    I have seen none of the bills. To my knowledge the AEA has not funded Coughlin's arbitration. They would have in the event that Coughlin used MTA attorney's, but he went with a private counsel and the more »

    I love it. A 25% discount. What's that, frequent flyer points? How about we tack on the costs for stenographers and arbitrators and call it even? Even with the new figure we are talking about close to more »

    Joe: 1. The AEA is not funding Coughlin's half of the arbitration. They would not be able to afford it, first of all. Maybe they have contributed support or consultation along with the MTA but Coughli more »

    In fairness to the wrongfully accused I feel compelled to respond and will offer a few details: 1. The AEA union is not footing the bill on this matter. Both parties have decided to go with private re more »
