"Pay Cut" Analysis Hostage Day Count: Day 2

Donald B. Hawthorne

The NEA's very public claim that the East Greenwich School Committee's contract proposals would result in "pay cuts" for teachers has been discredited in this post and several earlier posts mentioned at the beginning of that referenced post.

Along the way, many commentators on this blog and I have all challenged the NEA to put up quantitative proof to their "pay cut" claim or shut up.

I have also offered to post their analysis on this blog site for public scrutiny - just like I have already offered my own analysis for similar public review.

This new post is written in response to commentator John, who wrote:

Now, back on planet earth, as we come to the end of another chapter of "RI public sector union negotiations -- better than the Sopranos", can we start the hostage count for how many days will go by before [Pat] Crowley [of the NEA] puts any comparative quantitative analysis up on this blog?

We eagerly await a response! Prove us wrong and we will admit to it. Or 'fess up that your claim is false.

Until we get a response from the NEA, we will continue with a daily update on the "pay cut" analysis hostage count.

obviously Don, you never read my blog, since it has been down for more than two weeks!

Since Don has offered to host your data on his blog, I fail to see how that's particularly relevant, Pat. It seems to me that, while you whine and yell about his numbers, you either aren't prepared to show yours or you simply are making it up as you go along.
