Who says the school should be in the health care business? Times are tight and going to get tighter. The school is not sacred when it comes to people losing their homes. Get rid of them.

Buster, we still haven't gotten rid of that 1 cent that was going to be removed as soon as the schools were built, have we?:-)

John, I think you are right.

I can hear the argument now:

" We know the economy is bad and that people are losing their jobs. However, its just another penny, and surely you can spare another cent...or two or three."

Buster, we're in one heck of a mess. Have you ever seen anyone admit that they can cut a budget?

I guess it is just natural to protect your wrok place but cuts are going to have to be made. The stimulus package might delay major cuts for a while but sooner or later the axe will fall.

Why do we need nurses in school? We got by without them for 100 years. I think our schools do a good job and I'm all for supporting them, but there is way too much fat in the school system.
