Carmel teachers have been working without a contract for nearly 2 years. This is too long for any professional to work without a contract, let alone people who are so vital to a community as are its teachers.
Carmel residents support their schools. Just recently, Carmel voters overwhelmingly voted in favor of a tax levy to increase local funding of their schools. It is time for Carmel’s school officials to support its teachers by giving them the respect they deserve by giving them a fair contract.
In this day and age, teachers have enough to worry about in their classrooms. They shouldn’t have to worry about working without knowing about something as essential as their salary. These high performing teachers deserve better.
ISTA stands strong with teachers in Carmel and are working hard to get them the contract and respect that they so richly deserve.
