Why whenever the issue is raised about school levies does the argument default to being about "greedy teachers". Wake-up people the problem is not with the teachers, nor are the voters wrong for not being able to afford to pay more taxes.
The problem is with the way in which Ohio School's are funded; ruled unconstitutional by the Ohio Supreme Court. FYI- other states don't have this problem.
I don't mind people complaining about being short on cash, but don't make it about the teachers. If you're going to participate in this debate, at least be willing to see past the tip of your nose and be informed!!
