Disgusted by administrative raises at Canton Central School
I am absolutely disgusted to learn that the administration at Canton Central has rewarded itself with a raise. In these difficult economic times, most people are having to tighten their belts just to make ends meet. It is absurd that the school board has allowed this to happen. These administrators are filling their own pockets with taxpayer’s money, while depriving students of better opportunities. There is too much pork at the top of the heap. The teachers are the ones who deserve raises- not lazy, egocentric administrators!
