Energy savings covers a salary

March 14, 2009

Re "A bite out of teachers," editorial, March 11

The Times dismisses saving $60,000 on energy costs, but that represents a classified employee's salary. If urging employees to be energy efficient, as our new policy does, will save one job, I don't believe it is too much to ask.

The Glendale Unified School District is weathering not a rainy day but a blizzard of ineptitude from Sacramento. The district is not closing schools or increasing class size. Our teachers still have their jobs. If that makes us "penny-wise misers," I'll wager there are many teachers in California who wish their boards of education were just like us.
