Letter to the editor: Small schools are nice but tax burden is high

Posted on May 20, 2019 |
By Claire M. Groby



Unfortunately, the question is not how many schools we need, but how many we can afford.

Firstly, I wish to state that I am no great advocate of closing schools. As an educator myself, I certainly do not wish to have schools close and teachers lose their jobs.

Letter to the editor: Education agency opts for software that has failed

Posted on May 20, 2019 |
By Laurie Childers



The Agency of Education (AOE) made a very bad decision accepting the “Power School” bid for implementation of the statewide public school accounting software. If legislation is not passed to delay its implementation this Legislative session, every business manager in this state will be required to transition by July 1, 2020, from a familiar and functioning account software system to an accounting system that has failed. At least one school district in the state has attempted implementation of the software and recently abandoned it.

In his May 16 Clippings column Karl Lindholm was correct about “Pat Garret and Billy the Kid” being a great movie. He was wrong about Bob Dylan playing Billy the Kid. That part starred Kris Kristofferson. Dylan had a small part as Alias.

The obvious intent of the law was to prevent significant changes to the character and culture of the local community. Ironically, Act 46 passed in 2015, completely ignores this requirement.
