LEVY: Timing is everything

Print Article

Levy elections ought to be held on Dec. 7, right after you receive your tax bill. Then we would be less apt to approve them.

Careful research would tend to demonstrate that the amount of money you spend has little to do with the quality of the education received. A quality education depends on quality teachers and a home life that is conducive to learning.

Teacher salaries make up the bulk of education costs. Teachers have had it easy for a long time, and they need to learn to live like the rest of the nation. I once asked a teacher how many he knew who could not live on a salary cut of 5 percent. He said he could not.

Teachers ought to set the example. Live in a comfortable home that is paid for, and drive an older automobile.

I believe that administration is fearful that a levy might not pass, so they want one that just goes on and on. But people at least need a chance to say no once in awhile.
