Re: “School board approves UR plan for East

"the usual $37" is a flat rate hourly pay for required hourly work beyond the 7hr day such as meetings and training. Some schools are using this flat hourly wage to pay for tutoring and extended day programs which it was not intended for initially. School leaders score big on budget when they can charm teachers into accepting this rate instead of a salary differnetial. Hourly wages do not account for planning, preparation, grading, parent contact, management and assessment that every group of students requires. My plumber makes about $50 and hour, and that is because he likes my family. My brother's hourly HVAC/punchlist rate is about $95. I have no idea what my uncle's hourly carpentry rate is, but think it's over $150/ hr. $37/hr is NOT a good ad for recruiting teachers. Not a good precedent to set for teachers nationally. "Why teachers don't have second homes and boats." "Why teachers dress 'like teachers'"

Re: “To Russia, with tough love

Good job representing us, Paul.
I'd like the writer to include the comments of Russian- American Rochester residents who moved here from Novgorod, or from our counterparts there. They are not too hard to contact for input. You just have to wake up early or stay up a little late to call at a good time. Perhaps there will be follow up. Perhaps City could dedicate a column to Sister Cities news in their international section ;)
Henry, I truly appreciate your Grandfather and all he has done. He is a great man. I learned a lot from working with him, Joe G, and several others on the board and our committee over the past 14 years.
