I was disappointed in a school board election flier recently sent out that published information on the Westbury School District’s administrators and teachers’ salaries. I certainly understand and sympathize with concern over high school taxes, but penalizing teachers is not the answer, and especially not by using the names of individual teachers in the district in connection with a campaign agenda.
As a proud graduate of the Westbury Schools and someone who has been taught and encouraged by many of these teachers and administrators, I can say that the vast majority of them deserve every penny for the support and dedication that they give on a daily basis to the children of this community.
