I love when people who don't work in schools assume we are frivolous spenders :) I best be going now, i'm going to go blow our entire school budget on 29 gigantic continent carpets!

  • Eric Pepeson NW sider, modern conservative

    ktg913, I have experience in school budgeting and financial oversight. Moreover, it's harebrained to dismiss someone because they don't have experience in school budget spending. Considering these are tax payers and might have more experience in business, accounting and planning than the current board. And I don't know if you are kidding about 29 carpets because I have worse on spread sheets!

  • Eric Pepeson NW sider, modern conservative

    Anne, what do you make out of that? Let me guess, "Trump is removing education from children!"

    No, it's to get big government out of controlling too much of the education sector and back into local hands where it belongs.

    Please read into it objectively, it makes more sense. Let our local communities have more responsibility than big government.

  • Sigh. You guys are having a really great argument here. Neither of you are going to persuade the other, so why not move on?
