The yearly tax-payer scaremongering redux!
Instead of the yearly stampeding of the Beacon sheeple--why not for once, honestly examine your school system's Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) for over-budgeted, over-funded item areas (like overly cushy pension investments or disguised "slush funds").
Make your school system more efficient instead of forever sucking off the clueless property tax-paying public!!! How about some fiscal discipline instead of bureaucratic self-interest for once?
The more money the public throws at your damned bloated school system...the dummer the kids get!... Seemingly however, NO ONE ever looks at your CAFR in any open objective way!
