Do I have all the answers? No, but that's not the point. |
The point is that the school board doesn't have the answers either.
So you don't have all the answers and neither does the board? So let's just sit on our hands and watch it implode. Their first job is to manage the finances of the district. IMO, they did that this time. They saved a great deal of money. Share an idea though if you have one.
The difference between us as parents and the school board is that it is there JOB to EFFECTIVELY manage the school district.
Exactly. It's their job. We elected them to do that job so until you're ready to run for office, you can continue to whine and cry or you can be part of the solution by presenting some good ideas to save similar amounts of money.
A job in which they have consistently failed to do.
Why? Because you say so? Well, they reacted to a financial crisis by first asking us to vote for a referendum or face the consequences. We voted it down. Now we face the consequences.
Their history of failure has become their "status quo". That at least, you can count on."
Certainly your opinion and it is shared by others. I hope to see your name on a ballot next April so all can be fixed.
