Pensions should be redistributed

These high-level school pensions are uncalled for, (Journal, Aug. 18). How much do you need? While the schools are reducing services, their pensions are bankrupting the entire system. Why isn’t this curtailed? Where are the priorities? What about the low-level employees who lose their jobs? What about teachers and school infrastructure? Isn’t this considered? And all the while some hugely benefit. Something is wrong here, and it needs to change for the welfare of everyone. There definitely needs to be reform. Simply, this money received by the few elite, should be reduced (trickled down) so as to be redistributed toward financing the employees and school upkeep. ALLEN CASSIDY, Auburn
