Opinion: Mt. Abe doesn’t need a $33 million fix

When it comes to the November bond vote for the proposed renovations to Mount Abraham Union High School, it is time to say NO.
I went to the one of the open house tours and discussion sessions this past summer, and found the school in much better condition than expected. Yes, there are some issues to address, but not $33 million worth.
I feel that the curriculum, the teachers, and the leadership or lack thereof are more important than the physical space. I keep hearing that our school is not a conducive environment for learning. Again, I say it is the teachers, what they teach and how they teach it that is more important than where they teach it.
