mandate attendance teachers into teacher contract comment on Buffalo news live blog at education meeting last night

Comment From 1st grade teacher  I have no problem taking out the attendance clause in our contract IF we can add something else into the contract. Like it is MANDATORY that all schools have attendance teachers on staff. Or it is mandatory that students miss less than 28 days to be promoted. If we work those other safeguards into a contract, we can take the attendance clause out and problem solved. The only hitch is the district needs to sitdown and negotiate a real contract with teachers. We haven't done that since before Y2K. This issue is not hopeless. It just requires REAL work, not platitudes. We prob wont get it in time for this year, but with a little elbow grease we could do it before next year.
