Literally Hundreds of Millions of Your School Tax Dollars Are Going to Pay the New York State United Teachers Union Reps in Our Schools Each Year.
Question: Why Should We Need Fundraisers?
So My Question Is This: Why Should You and Your Neighbors Have To Do Fundraisers to Send Our Students On Educational Field Trips? Why Not Just Demand that the Teachers Union Pay Their Own Reps?
This is the situation in the 697 school districts throughout New York state and it shouldn’t be that way. All of you parents and tax-payers should ask Matt Miller why he’s being paid to do union work when he’s supposed to be a teacher! Ask Matt Miller the next time you see him why he feels justified taking money you intended to be spent on education and using it to do work to promote the teachers union, New York State United Teachers.
You might also want to ask the NYSUT representative in the RCS schools, Mr Matt Miller, why, if he’s getting more than half his salary paid by you and he’s doing teachers union work for it, WHY!?! you have to do fundraisers to send your children on school field trips?
Oh! And by the way, before you start slamming the present RCS board of education just be advised that all of this crap started when Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca and Cathy Deluca were on the RCS board of education, probably when Dirty Hands Jerry was president, and throughout that time Matt “the Mutt” Miller was the teachers union rep, and got himself the plum job of energy manager, too, while trying to position his wife to steal a principal’s job and abusing Hakim Jones. Yeah! They were pretty busy then, too.
If you’re a plumber or an electrician or a carpenter, do taxpayers pay your union representatives? Do you think the employees at now bankrupt Hostess had taxpayers paying their union reps? Can you think of one single reason why you should be paying for NYSUT’s union rep in our district or any other school district? If so, please share it with us.
Just think, if Matt Miller is making at least $70K a year (Actually, in 2012, Matthew “Matt the Mutt” J. Miller made $88,164.00, and then he was paid at least another $10,000 as energy manager! And Miller’s wife, also a teacher, is making more than $60K!) in teachers salary (not counting his many other benefits) and at least half of that were reimbursed by NYSUT to the RCS school district, you’d have an additional $35K for field trips and the little educational extras. And that’s a conservative figure!
Coaches, Teachers Using High-Energy Consuming Appliances! Why?
We’ve also received an unconfirmed report that coaches and teachers at RCS high school are using unauthorized coffeemakers and hotplates, that windows are being blocked, etc. Are they all stupid? Or are they making a statement in protest to their darling Matt Miller being canned as energy manager? Maybe somebody should be making inspections and asking some questions why those morons are being so irresponsible? Or are they saying that they’re too stupid to know they’re wasting energy, wasting your tax dollars, and that they actually need some dorkus to babysit them? Ask some questions, people!
Bus Garage Lunatic Asylum! What is Going On There?
We’ve reported several times on the lunacy going on at the RCS school district bus garage. Our reports ranged from busdrivers refusing to let students on the bus to be transported home. Students being left behind and having to be picked up by parents. A student actually walking home on 9W. A broken down bus on the NYS Thruway and a busdriver, rather than getting the minor students to safety, has them push the bus!
Now we are hearing about students looking for their usual bus and finding that the bus numbers are changing, confusing the hell out of the kids! And mechanics driving buses? Are they certified to do that? Are there students on board?
And what’s the smoke screen being sent up by the manager and her lackies?
The Feature Story
What Do NYSUT, Matt Miller, C. Miller, H. Jones Have in Common?
Well, it certainly seems that there was some racism going on in the RCS school district that involved the NYSUT teachers union representative, Matt Miller, Miller’s wife Karen Miller, who now teaches in the Catskill school district, former interim superintendent Elizabeth “Betsy” Smith, and the current principal at Pieter B. Coeymans elementary school, Hakim Jones.
We are waiting for confirmation of the facts but it’s safe to share that what we now know is pretty gruesome and indicates that there was ugly racism at work on Gerald “Dirty-Hands Jerry” Deluca’s and wifey Cathy Deluca’s watch, and collaborated in by teacher and union rep, Matt “the Mutt” Miller, that indicates that the Delucas (as sitting board of education members at the time), Matt Miller (who was the NYSUT rep at the time), and Karen Miller, Matt Miller’s wife, along with Elisabeth “Betsy” Smith, former principal of Pieter B. Coeymans elementary school and later RCS CSD superintendent, had hatched a plan to sideline Hakim Jones, principal of Pieter B. elementary, and install Karen Miller as principal!
According to unconfirmed reports, Matt Miller pushed, with the Delucas’ and Smith’s support, to sideline Jones, an African-American, and to put Karen Miller, Matt Miller’s wife, in the principal’s office. In the meantime, Karen Miller was installed as interim principal, while they shoved every humiliating job available down Jones’ throat, probably hoping he’d throw in the towel and disappear. Well, Jones had enough and filed a grievance, and like all bullies, the Deluca’s, the Millers, and Smith backed down. Hakim Jones resumed his position as principal of Pieter B. Coeymans elementary school, a post he continues to hold today.
It looks like the Miller-Deluca connection goes way back and has some very seedy history. So, it’s no wonder that Miller, Deluca, the teachers on the RCS board of education, and NYSUT are in each others’ pockets.
But you’d like to ask where NYSUT was when the voting scandal was in the making, or even more importantly, where was NYSUT when Matt “the Mutt” Miller was inciting students to bully other students during the 2012-13 school budget voting scandals. In fact, where were the teachers when the parents were in an uproar about the abuse their children were experiencing at RCS schools. Answer: Doing what they do best; feathering their own beds and ambushing anyone who posed a threat to their scheming!
Matt Miller has a history, apparently, of taking very good care of Matt Miller and those close to him; this doesn’t bode well for NYSUT‘s overall image, either. But like any other union, NYSUT takes care of itself, and Matt Miller is a company man and intent on taking care of himself, too. But our burning question is this: was NYSUT condoning Miller’s self-serving abuse of a fellow teacher and union member? Wasn’t Miller, as the teachers union representative, supposed to be ensuring the welfare of Hakim Jones and promoting his career, rather than selfishly ensuring the advancement of his wife’s career over against that of a hard-working, dedicated African-American? This tells us a lot about Matt Miller and the precious teachers union, NYSUT as well as their attitudes regarding minorities, justice, fairness, and equal opportunity.
And you’d better give some serious thought to the kind of people that are teaching your children values, morals, ethics. You can’t teach what you don’t have or know, right? So why are people like the Millers still being exposed to developing minds and characters? What do you think they’re teaching them?
Bravo! Pieter B. Coeymans Elementary School Principal, Hakim Jones, for having the courage to do what’s right and fight back!
Where was the Times Useless when all of this newsworthy drama was playing out? I guess they were out to lunch at the time, or more likely libeling some poor bastard like Rodney K.
Again, the exact history of this case has not yet been confirmed but our sources are reliable. Sure, we may be running the risk of Times Union pseudo-journalism by publishing this before absolute confirmation, but Hey! grant us this one. If you have better facts, share them and we’ll be happy to publish!
