For my friends who want less government and more control to the states; well, I think you got your wish.
The federal government has cut funding in education to the states and to the schools. So to make up for those cuts schools are now asking for referendums to make up the difference.
The Colonial school district is asking taxpayers to cough up $9.6M in a referendum vote. If not sports progams in th middle schools and 9th grade will be eliminated requiring parents to pahy to participae in school athletics and limiting transportation for activities.
Even is the referendum passes almost 40 posiions would be eliminated.
Soooo, your federal taxes aren’t going down even thought the Feds are throwing more programs onto the states, and you are going to be paying more taxes if you want to support your schools and other programs.
Be careful what you wish for!!
