It isn't a long term solution. It's a band-aid at best. It will also likely result in very good teachers leaving to find a place where their skills will be better compensated. I have friends in Hudson that have started to look for homes in Woodbury and other eastern ring suburbs as of today.
A long term solution would be to budget X% of tax revenue with 4 year projections.
Of course let's not forget the increased administrative costs of negotiating with each individual employee as oppossed to a Union Steward dealing with all the negotiations for the group.
