To the Editor:
So, the Warwick School Department intends to defy the collective bargaining agreement that they themselves signed on November 20 a mere three weeks ago (Warwick Beacon, Tuesday December 12). Or, in the words of Superintendent Dr. Phil, they "wouldn't be able to include retroactive or proactive pay raises in the December 21 check."
Now, one has to wonder why they "wouldn't be able to," since for the past three years they have not spent the money on teachers. Where, then, could the money have gone? Oh, that's right. They spent it on lawyers. That certainly helped the students of Warwick!
