eye...if you don't like the taxes, you also can move to another town. This town has great value because of the education system. Education is about the future of our children...if that is no longer important to you, there are more affordable community options. Just as you feel the teachers can leave, so can you. I vote for helping teachers get a small raise to help feed their families. All yes votes here and most households in Beford, I suspect! :) If not, I invited you into my daughters' school to look into the eyes of the people you feel don't deserve it.

Dear Debbie etc., etc. Where in my post did I mention I "don't like the taxes" in Bedford?

8 years ago, we moved to Bedford from a neighboring town with the specific goal to raise our family in this school district. As the parent of a first-grader (and a kindergartener next year), I am fairly new to this issue and this is the first year I have had the opportunity to learn about it and understand all the viewpoints. I do believe that the strength of a community is underscored by its support for its educational system. If we are to continue to generate interest for people to move to our town in the future, we must support those who educate our children. If we encourage teachers to "jump ship," to find employment elsewhere, I wonder how our educator "talent pool" will look in the years to come. As a previous poster commented, this pay raise is not for ALL teachers, but for those who fall below their peers in surrounding towns. I want to keep the talent in Bedford....where it belongs.

Eye...why else would you not want to vote for teachers to have a raise? What other reason could there be? As I reread your statement...it's because you don't get one? You currently are not working, are you? There is a big difference.
