Serious thinker, sumbeach, senior citizen, and business owner! Having been born way before WWII, there is a good chance that I am older than you, so it is with some elderly wisdom that I suggest that you get over "the good old days" syndrome, and accept that times change and so does the cost of things required to run schools. Bus diesel 15 years ago was $1.15, now it is close to $4.00. The cost of light bread for the cafeteria has quadrupled in those same 15 years; so has milk. Today it takes about $85,000 to earn a four year degree from a state supported college to teach. Since the state requires a Master degree for administrators, that is an additional $40,000. And you brag that anyone can do it?
How many of you are on the substitute teacher list in your school district? How many of you regularly attend board meetings to see how your friends and neighbors who serve as trustees struggled to make the right decisions for our community's children...and your tax dollars? No, you prefer to sit in the coffee shop all morning, and start every comment you make about the schools with, "By gawd, I tell you one thing" and then you release a volley of nonsense. No wonder many of your younger generation don't like our older generation.
