Wisconsin school district increases teacher work hours

After collective bargaining powers were curtailed in Wisconsin, the Kaukauna Area School District  is planning to turn a $400,00 deficit into a $1.5 million surplus through savings in health insurances and pension costs.  According to Byron York in the Washington Examiner,  board president Todd Arnoldussen said that the work rules had also changed.

“In the collective bargaining agreement, high school teachers only had to teach five periods a day, out of seven,” says Arnoldussen. “Now, they’re going to teach six.” In addition, the collective bargaining agreement specified that teachers had to be in the school 37 1/2 hours a week. Now, it will be 40 hours.
