This note from our middle-school principal made me cry. I imagine she did as well.
Thanks, Republicans for allowing this to happen to our schools, and thanks to so many of my fellow citizens, who believe that sacrificing the future of this country’s children is right and proper.
“Wednesday night, Superintendent Russell shared with the school board his proposals for dealing with the 30 million dollar budget deficit for next year. The proposals are just that….proposals. Community and staff members will have an opportunity to provide feedback to the board on these proposals. Please see attached for meeting dates. I will certainly keep you updated on any additional meeting dates or new information.
The proposals shared by Superintendent Russell Wednesday night were daunting. We aren’t sure what form the final decisions will take, but we do know that the educational experience to which we are accustomed will be changing.”
And this in a public school system that was already struggling.
