Oh, have I ever. What I'm saying is: Can you, in your own words, please articulate what statement those people made?

Does money guarantee a good education? How much money can thrown into the fire without realizing it does no good. When a company is in trouble they look at every way to cut the fat, why not the schools? I may have said this before, bungalows now house extra families resulting in many more children.Single family homes paying taxes, with three families,garbage bills for single family homes with three families. This all stresses the system so the individual homeowner pays.

 The school board has said they have cut as much as possible.  As I told you before, the district took out a working cash bond last October because they wouldn't have had enough money to pay the bills in January.  A working cash bond is a last resort measure - sort of like a pay day loan.

  Also, as I said in another post, you are going to pay for it one way or another - either via higher debt (which will raise your taxes) or via the tax rate.  One way or another, your taxes are going to go up.  Pick your poison.

Tell me more about the "fat" in the schools. Why is it important for schools to behave like for-profit businesses? What resources, to your mind, are extraneous when it comes to educating children, and how have Berwyn schools benefitted from the ones that are already cut?

When we were very young, cowboys and indians were played in the vacant lots.We would strap on our holsters and six guns and off we would go.For hours we would run around the lot firing our cap guns, can anyone imagine doing this today?
