Do you suppose that the schools would ever say, we know the economy is bad so we will try our best to do what we can without asking for more... Only in a dream, as the practices of today are a nightmare for us and the future payment plan!

We used to call it Nursery School, not Pre-K and Parents paid for it. I went to Mt Carmel Nursery School and my kids went to the one that used to be on Bleeker Street. BTW, whatever happened to Head Start? I thought that was Fed funded Pre-K.?

All we do is find new programs to spend tax money on. The latest; full funding of Pre-K. We can't afford to pay for what we already have. If families want Pre-K for their children, they should pay for it out of their own pocket, not stick it with those of us who don't have and never have had children in school. One more way towards big government and higher taxes.

As long as the aid isn't getting decreased these school districts should not be complaining. They need to start learning to live within their means. Time to cut back on the administrators - 1 Superintendent and 1 Principal for each school and no more assistants to do their jobs for them. Administrators who make $100,000 in this area should not be complaining for leaving work at 3, snow days and lazy summers. The taxpayers are tapped out and the increases need to stop.

That system to "rebate taxpayers" can be compared perfectly to those "salary freezes" unions agree to when things are tough. You know you're going to be making that up at some point.....
