Burlington Education Association says Report of Neutral Fact-Finder Paves Path Toward Settlement
BURLINGTON – The city’s teachers condemned the chair and vice-chair of the Burlington School Board for seeming to choose disruption instead of negotiation with their public threats of impositions and strikes.
It is unfortunate that the school board and its negotiating team prefer to issue press releases rather than stay at the bargaining table to reach a settlement. Instead of trying to score points in the media, Board Chairman Mark Porter and his team should be trying to reach a settlement with the men and women who actually work in our city’s schools.
We are the educators of Burlington, Vermont. We strive daily to build the schools that Burlington's kids deserve.
