Opinion: Vote ‘no’ on VUHS budget

The voters of Addison, Ferrisburgh, Panton, Vergennes and Waltham should send a message to the Vergennes Union High School board, administration and Addison Northwest Supervisory Union officials by voting no to the VUHS budget on May 13.
It is time that educating our youth be seriously assessed. Maybe it is time to take a look at a more nontraditional approach. We currently have a system in which we spend a significant amount of money on the ANwSU office and that doesn’t even begin to educate the students. We then have the large bureaucracy within the school itself and then there is state and union involvement that drives up the price and dilutes the quality.
There has to be a way that we can educate our youth and keep the cost of overhead low.
Roger Norton, Waltham
