In an Affluent Town Dedicated to LearningTeachers Must “Fight” for a Decent Contract
To the Editor:
Why must public school teachers in Princeton “fight” to receive a decent salary contract year after year?
That this occurs in an affluent town dedicated to learning: the University, Graduate College, Rider, Seminary, Institute for Advanced Study, Theological Library, Art Museum, Public Library) is a shame!
Every person reading this letter must agree that there is nothing more important than the training of their kids in education and character as future citizens.
Most teachers I know love the kids, the town, the subjects, despite the fact that they can’t afford to buy a new house in the former Borough or Township or plan to save enough to retire.
