Last year, SRVEA leadership stated that they "never negotiate just for salary increases." Yet, here we are now where SRVEA negotiated exclusively for salary. Why does anyone continue to believe these people that constantly lie to the community?

If anyone has been listening, the teachers have always said their negotiations are focused on their students. They bargained for smaller classes. They bargained for better supports including nurses, social workers, and school psychologists. This year they bargained for getting and keeping the best teachers by securing competative salaries. It is foolish to speak against these salary increases and not realize that these too are student focused. Just take a look at Dublin USD and you'll see why they needed to negotiate for salaries. DUSD got a huge bump in health care coverage, higher starting wages, and 5% in salary increases. We lost several incredible teachers including my kids' beloved Alamo Elementary teacher (a man which is a rare commodity) to Dublin. I, for one am thrilled with the salary settlements. Thank goodness our teachers are being paid at least a bit of what they're worth!
