Did Dracut Play A Role in Westford Teachers Resolution?
Today's question of the day looks at last month's new teachers' contract and asks if significant cutbacks in nearby Dracut impacted things here in Westford.
Only four days before last month's new Westford Education Association contract, ending the long standoff between Westford's teachers and the town, school officials in Dracut eliminated over 50 positions in their district.
Like Westford, Dracut has been facing significant budgetary obstacles, although the outcome between the two towns was obviously much different.
Today we're looking for your thoughts on what happened with both towns. Is comparing Westford and Dracut like comparing apples and oranges? Are there tangible similarities? Did the Dracut decision impact things in Westford? What's next for the two towns?
