Opinion: School spending must be curbed

It never fails, year after year we hear rumblings from our elected representatives that lament the property tax burden we all face yet, year after year the rumblings sound more like lip service than genuine active concern that results in action.
The boards correctly blame the legislators and vice versa and that is where the problem lies.
Leaders at all levels have a direct indisputable responsibility to rectify what has become an unaffordable education spending and taxation model.
It is time we demand action to repeal acts 60 and 68 and replace them with an act that will return spending and tax decisions to the local level while taking the state out of the mix.
