Save Our Schools. Tell the Harford County Board of Education to pass a sustainable budget which honors teachers' contracts.
Save Our Schools
We the undersigned, feel that it is the duty, responsibility, and obligation of the Harford County Board of Education to create and pass a sustainable budget, which maintains quality education in Harford County through promoting the retention and recruitment of the best possible teachers by honoring teachers’ salary scale, providing quality teacher driven, needs based professional development and creating a healthy workplace by honoring our teachers’ negotiated agreement.
We believe that it is irresponsible for the Harford County Board of Education to continuously fail to honor it financial commitments to its staff. Furthermore, we believe that this failure to provide financial stability and failure to honor teachers’ salary scales has led to a mass departure of high quality teachers which is causing deterioration of our schools and community. Similarly, we believe that it is in the best interests of both the community and our schools for the Harford County Board of Education to honor both the salary scales and negotiated agreement of our teachers.
