To The Daily Sun,
The Alton Teachers' Association is a part of the community that values public schools and learning, despite the many obstacles to successful education. Some of those obstacles are time, the prevailing political winds, and of course, differing opinions.
Alton's Budget Committee and School Board both hold the same opinion, however, with regard to the new collective bargaining agreement for Alton Central School teachers: resounding support.
Casually referred to as the teacher contract, this agreement asserts positive and predictable working conditions while being fair to both the district and its citizenry. The seemingly unending, rising spiral of health insurance costs has been a concern for all, thus the new contract notably has Alton teachers shouldering more of this burden.
The Alton Teachers' Association encourages all voters to participate on March 14. We ask for the community's support so we may surmount together the many obstacles to successful education.
Richard Brown, President
Alton Teachers' Association
