I applaud Margaretta Schools administration, Board of Education and the leadership of Superintendent Ed Kurt for their new initiatives. All too often the powers in charge of tax supported entities rest on their laurels and the public dollar. Ed Kurt and the Margaretta leaders have created a program that will not only produce revenue, it will provide what appears to be a very valuable and needed service to students and parents alike. Whether or not these programs provide the desired result will not be the fault of the Margaretta Local Schools professionals. It is up to all of us to promote these promising programs, for the sake of our children.
That being said, one final thought! As a tax payer, property owner -- however, not in Margaretta Township -- and a citizen there are three tax supported programs I will always vote for: police, fire and schools.
