Niagara Gazette — If you want to cut taxes, go to the governor, the state Legislature and the State Education Department and yes, even the federal government too, and tell them to cut a bunch of the programs that they mandate. Cut all of the mandated testing that is making students sick. Discontinue the mandated teacher evaluation program that has created a mountain of paperwork and hours of both teacher and staff time. I could go on, the list is long. Find out where the real problems lie.
If you are seriously concerned about the school budget, get involved, come to our budget workshops, sit down with staff or board members and really find out. There is an old adage “Do not just find fault, find a remedy.”
