To The Daily Sun,
The news article about the Shaker School District paying four teachers while having been suspended for drinking on school grounds makes me see red.
As a parent who disciplined my children, I remember taking driving privileges away from a high school son who let his homework go. I remember arguing with the principal that he would not suspend and let my son have a week's vacation for swearing at school, and yet our school officials — I imagine the superintendent and school board — allow four teachers to collect wages at taxpayers expense?
Taxpayers must speak up and say we don't discipline our children by rewarding them, so why should a public employee who gets suspended get paid for bad behavior.
It's time our hard-earned money is spent wisely by those we elect and hire, or make them accountable.
