A press release from Cary Elementary School District 26:
Board and CEA Reach Tentative Agreement on All Issues
The Board of Education of Cary Community Consolidated School District 26 and the Cary Education Association, which represents the teachers in labor negotiations, announced today that on Wednesday evening they reached a
tentative agreement on all outstanding issues.
The parties have been in negotiations since November in an effort to reach agreement on a new contract.
The previous collective bargaining agreement expired at the start of the 2011‐2012 school years.
The terms of the contract will be presented to the teachers for ratification next week and the Board of Education soon after. Details of the agreement will be released after ratification.

Unlike McHenry County College, which released a summary of the contract its board will approve tonight, local school boards, such as Cary’s, won’t let taxpayers know how the bulk of their taxes will be spent. Typically, 80% of a school district’s operating expenditures go for salaries. Some, of course, are for non-teachers, but faculty salaries make up most of that 80%.
I cannot understand why this does not disturb more people.
