      Kharn, you’re right. We should never give the school system more money to pay for increases in costs such as electricity, building maintenance, supplies, etc. That is the dumbest way of thinking and no matter how you and your buddy the d-bag tree want to slice it, the school system should be funded at a level that matches the wealth. This county does not and believe it or not is losing good people to neighboring counties never mind the morale that your little bucko’s have to deal with from pissed off teachers :)

      Have a pleasant and blessed day

      you scum bag

      Hot debate. What do you think? Thumb up 7 Thumb down 8
