Earlier this month, Farmington Schools Superintendent Susan Zurvalec appeared on a local TV news and public affair program to discuss education. During her appearance, she commented that her district’s teachers were feeling unappreciated despite pay raises and generous benefits.
Zurvalec and Harrison High School Principal Aaron Johnson should know that some parents of graduating seniors did not feel appreciated during commencement as we sat and listened to well-compensated administrators lecture us about how education is underfunded. I'm sure the unemployed parents or those of us paying 43% of our health insurance premium and getting zero matching dollars on our 401Ks didn't really want to hear about your alleged funding woes.
