Looks like Tallmadge & Stow are going to get an "A" for excellent rating. So tell me why they need more school funding money from levies in November? I think they are doing just fine thank you. Tallamdge & Stow teachers are doing just fine with their current salaries & benefits which are the among the highest in the area. The levy is about them getting bigger pay & benefits. It's not about the kids as they keep saying because the kids are doing just fine academically thank you.

I don't think elimination of high school busing, pay for play sports, or all day kindergarten has anything to do with the excellent academic rating, do you? These should continue plus eliminate more of the administrators who add no value to the daily teaching so that we don't have to pay anymore in property taxes in these tough economic times.

Are you are proposing is that we punish, or rather not continue to support the school districts in NE Ohio that are actually meeting and exceeding standards? The quality of these schools reflects the commitment or the teachers, residents, and students in these towns. I am glad that these issues are on the ballots so I can vote to support the local school district when it does so well. Believe me the alternative is not pretty.
