Big ‘T’ gets out her message of sub teacher pay raises today

This of course is the real story in Stormland today, the grunts in the trenches, not the millionaires at press conferences kissing T. Denny Sanford’s ass when he didn’t even bother to show up;

“We are hoping to give the substitutes a voice within the district and get the same treatment as every other entity,” Theresa Stehly said.

Stehly is leading the initiative. She says substitute teachers haven’t seen a raise in six years while teachers and other employees have. She doesn’t believe the district is listening to their needs but thinks they’ll have a voice in numbers.

Of course, it didn’t stop another credit card company lackey, who happens to sit on the school board, talk about the ‘merit’ of a sub teacher pay;

“In this coming budget cycle we’ll look at substitute teacher pay again if it merits it we’ll act on an increase, maybe, for substitutes,” Morrison said.

Tragic, coming from a man who works for a company that got a taxpayer bailout while the execs in his company live high on the hog. Go away.

She looks good. A formidable woman with strong convictions. It’s a start. Takes years to get attention. Silence for awhile then progress when Holman can make it sound like her idea. Police were on alert & district lawyer had to work for a change. Next time, no warning just flash demonstration. Got their attention. Success is small gains when you deal with stagnant government.

Stehly told me she handed fliers to about 80% of the subs attending. At the end of the in-service, Simons tried to cut Theresa off when she had a final question, and the subs called out, “Let her ask the question.”

Go Theresa. Craig (blog name) had a good idea with creating a web site for subs. I’ve been known to donate for such efforts. For every dime you spend against their arrogant stance, they spend a dollar trying to cover their derrierre. Homan has to go. Raises are affordable if she’s replaced with someone who’s paid fair and much lower compensation.

Holman is in it only for herself. Great going Teresa!

Stehly is going to be on KELO-AM Sunday morning at about 7:45 AM for FORUM talking about this issue.
