Public education cuts for Virginia

Newport News schools take another hit as the governor seeks to punish the best teachers.

Cutting the stipends of coaches, club leaders, and sponsors of extracirricular activities is the reverse of merit based pay. It penalizes the teachers willing to put in extra effort while the teachers who do nothing extra pay no price. I really don’t oppose cutting the public education budget, but I’d rather see an a…cross the board pay cut than to see the state abuse the few teachers willing to go above and beyond for our kids.
