The June 24 Review-Journal featured a story from reporter Amelia Pak-Harvey outlining how Clark County School District teachers were “double crossed” by the school district (“Teachers irate over school district’s about-face on pay raise formula”). Is it any doubt that these actions make it more difficult for the district to hire and retain qualified teachers, as well as to improve its low educational outcomes?
It is estimated that district will lose over 700-plus teachers, if not more. There is a medical plan in total disarray, and a total lack of concern from administrators for their teachers.
Superintendent Pat Skorkowsky, district human resources chief Andre Long and negotiator Edward Goldman all are to blame for this debacle, as are members of the school board, who now renege on their commitment.
Good luck trying to find qualified teachers to fill the openings in August.
