If the education reform bill passed by the House is what is eventually approved by the Legislature and signed into law by the governor, Vermont will have made some significant progress in the march toward a more efficient, less costly education system. It will also put us in the position of being able to use our resources to improve educational outcomes.
I am writing in response to Rustan Swenson’s letter in the April 13 edition, “PSB has licensed the desecration of Green Mountains.” Mr. Swenson sounds off on what he sees as the destruction of the Green Mountains and of Vermont’s landscape, blaming it on the PSB’s granting of solar installations, fracked gas pipelines, and presumably industrial wind towers on ridgelines (though wind by name is never mentioned) mainly by out-of-state or foreign corporations in the name of renewable energy.
Unfortunately, lots of people of different ethnicities in our state of Vermont are racially profiled at least once in their life, creating horrible memories.
