Teachers: A promise is a promise
TEACHERS IN THE Addison Central School District and their supporters gathered on Route 7 at Charles Avenue Tuesday afternoon to protest cuts to state pension funds. Middlebury Union High School teacher Bjarki Sears said he and fellow demonstration organizers were very happy with the turnout of at least 130 people, and he said they felt a lot of public support. With the state pension fund on unstable financial ground, legislators are considering changes to pension payouts that teachers say change the terms of promises made to them in earlier contracts.
