To unite requires action

Posted

The day after the election the newly elected school board members promised they would try to reunite our community. Unfortunately, their actions thus far prove otherwise.

Tens of thousands of taxpayer dollars have now been spent on legal fees to defend the school board’s misuse of taxpayer dollars in the November campaign. All of this money should have gone to classrooms.

The school board has vowed to appeal this decision — which will cost more taxpayer dollars.

If the school board truly wanted to unite us as a community, they would stop squandering our money on lawyers, campaigns, outside interests, or anything else that does not directly help the students in our community and put that money back where it belongs: In the classroom.

If the school board truly wanted to unite us as a community, they would immediately stop any further legal action and instead listen to parents and their concerns, and then try to alleviate them in meaningful ways.

In addition, if the school board truly wanted to unite us as a community, they would not hold so much of their meetings in private council.

If the school board truly wanted to unite us as a community, they would focus on the children in our community, not on personal political agendas.

Unfortunately, the new school board has done none of that. They say they want to unite us. I say: Prove it.
