Spatter - ALWAYS VOTE NO MILLAGES.........?

So...maybe the kids could all bring their own personal chalk board and abacus and use birch bark for tablet paper. They could de-centralize all the current school systems and re-open the one room school houses. Fuel usage would drop all over the country -but there might be a shortage of buggy whips....
Come on - what are you thinking? We are educating the future. The elementary kids of today will be employed in areas that are yet to be imagined. We have to think out side the box.
The world is ever changing. We must change with it or curl up and die. Nothing is free - and you will always get exactly what you pay for.

I hope the $ is used wisely. I think if GRPS or GRCC were on the ballot, a lot of "no thank you's" would be voted for.

Educate them well. We will use them in states not having the regressive nonhomestead tax. Thats where the good paying jobs will be. The economy does not suck in all states and Michigan leads the way in those that do. Wonder why?
