Robert Reboli, a basic skills and remedial English teacher at Madison Avenue Elementary School in Irvington, has some advice for his fellow educators as they prepare to fight Gov.Christopher Christie’s proposed state budget: “Never trust a fat f***.”Quick, get the fainting coach! And during their lunch hours! On school internet connections!
That’s what Reboli posted on a Facebook group called New Jersey Teachers United Against Governor Chris Christie’s Pay Freeze, which has more than 57,000 fans -- a powerful grass roots tool as the teachers union fights Christie’s proposed state budget.
But comments posted on the social networking site – most of them during school hours -- often get personal as they exercise their first amendment rights.
You know, Wally, if the Governor of NJ told your employer to expect a 15% cut in aid, and then cut it all, and then said you need to take a pay freeze and pay more for your benefits, and kept saying he wasn't demonizing you, except when he was, you might be a bit impolite yourself.
And nice job looking up the salaries of teachers and adding it to the story. Classy.
