The United States spends more money per student than any other nation in the World and we aren't even close to being first. Throwing more hard earned money at the problem will not fix it.

This is an inaccurate statement. Never let the truth stand in the way on an ignorant argument.

Oh Shumway you have been duped. What you cite is a blog that contains the same half-truths that were previously posted on other blogs. I guess if something is posted on enough blogs that makes it completely true.

Using labels or trying to insult does not make half-truths any more true.

Yet, 2060, there are states that spend on education wiser than this one!

Seems the teachers have too much time on their hands if they can waist more taxes to promote this charade. Utilizing the ignorance of children who many or most never went without does not sit well with taxpayers, it angers us. These inexperienced youth never had to work for a living and their envisions of Santa Claus paying the bills isn’t much different than the teachers that promoted this report.
If you don't want the cuts then YOU go get a job and contribute the wages to your school; a lesson in Capitalism will do you good in balancing out the spoon feed Socialism the teachers are feeding you.

gunners making to much money........

How many people would vote yes if the BOE and Mr. Gunner would step down if the levy passed?

God Of Thunder

I'm sure Gunner and the board have some guaranteed 'yes' votes.. They will just give the kids who are of age, extra credit for 'yes'. Of course they'll link it to Government class. I bet they wish the Board of Elections hadn't moved the polls out of the school so it was easier too brainwash the kids into voting 'yes'...

VOTE NO!!!!

rickross2

I would vote yes with a round of firings. I think the BOE is playing the same game our government has been for years. It's almost as if they are PURPOSELY ruining our future both financially and by corrupting the minds of the youth. I think you should take the five most informed commenters from this thread, let them make a list of questions to ask all the members of the BOE. Post the questions and responses on here and let us decide who gets fired. It's OUR money dammit.

Here a tax, there a tax, every where a tax in Perkins. Perkins is getting swamped with taxes. I like how the schools put the kids up to being pawns. Every teacher would like more wages and benefits so they get the kids to put up signs. The voters need to take their anger out in the voting booth and just vote no on everyting including the union.

There are plenty of free French lessons online. You can also purchase software for computers to learn just about any language.

Bricks and mortar schools are becoming obsolete. With computers and the internet, one can learn just about anything outside of a school building. Testing and lab work can be done in a building. Many universities have online classes.

Even family courts warn parents about using children for their go-between. It is not a good thing to put kids in the middle of "fights." School administrations using children to further their propaganda is shameful and whoever is behind promoting this as indicated in this picture; and "using" these kids for their selfishly motivated intention, should have a red face and apologize to everyone of those kids' parents.

Gunner, move into the district, get some skin in the game. Until you will share the pain of the locals you have no credibility. Buy at 200k or 300k house and see you taxes go up and we will vote with you...not gonna happen

Awww. poor babies... they may miss their class trip (they still have those,right ? ) to France.

That's life -- sometimes --you JUST don't get everything you want.

Common Sense

Students pay for this on their own through fundraising. It is open only to those who can afford to do so.

Give it time and they'll be using the music department as their next pawns.

Yeah, well maybe it's time to get rid of the music department. Make it all pay to play.

I find it sickening that your generation is screwing up our generations opportunities.

FlyBoy86

Instead of pointing fingers about whois screwing up opportunities, why don't you search them out instead of waiting for them to be handed to you. While everyone else is pointing fingers and blaming each other, the smart ones move in and capitalize on the situation.

starryeyes83

No one owes you anything in this life. Figure it out for yourselves.

How about a ban on frivolous levies. These people will not stop until it is passed.
