The Longwwod Schools are killing the Leisure communities. The Longwood Stats are terrible. Most upward mobile families have moved out or go to private schools. Longwood failed my kids. MOVE

According to the article:

"The proposed budget includes an unspecified amount for teacher salaries, which are being negotiated"

So, what is the point of the vote??? What a joke.

"In addition, steadily declining enrollment over the past five years has allowed the district to reduce class sizes, officials said."

Double joke. I suppose the goal is to have one teacher and assistant for every student...

You failed your kids by not understanding that money is not wasted on educating children who will take over from you and who will care for you as members of the community... as volunteers and people who learn to respect education and value art and culture and the patience to listen to someone even when they may not be upwardly mobile.

Wear is your brain?
