All NHUSD Schools will have at least 15 Furlough Days, an additional 9 from this year!

Wrong! They don't have to take more furlough days. Teachers can decide to take a cut in pay and the furlough days would be eliminated. Instead, these highly compensated teachers would rather take it out on students by not teaching. I don't think they care about students at all--it's the pocketbook they care about!

They would also rather see their fellow colleague laid off than accept a concession.... however, according to NHUSD's web site there is discussion of concessions but they haven't disclosed what that entails. Stay tuned, they will announce next week after the union members (teachers) vote on it.
