Subject: Priorities vs. Rhetoric
It’s all about priorities.
Bullying, depression, and anger management are just a few of the issues facing our students today. In your lifetime, you have witnessed how far we have advanced in our ability to help identify, address, and overcome the mental health challenges facing our children. In doing so, we have helped nurture more successful citizens. We have only been able to do this by connecting teachers, counselors, school psychologists and other support staff at the school. Stop the Superintendent from cutting this safety net out from under our kids.
The budget is a list of the school district’s priorities. If the priorities are safe and appropriately staffed schools, then the budget should reflect that. It’s easy to talk the talk. The budget is your opportunity to walk the walk. Change your vote and tell the Superintendent to come back with a budget that isn’t balanced on the backs of educators and school employees.
It’s not a choice between layoffs and concessions; it’s a choice between priorities and rhetoric.
