Currently, Sikeston Public Schools do not borrow the maximum allowed by law. Under the new school bond issue, the limit will increase borrowing to the MAXIMUM allowed. It will also RAISE our Personal Property Taxes around 20% for years.

Also, this "new" building will go hand-in-hand with common core implementation with the technology, etc. they need to implement common core, and eventually take teachers out of the classroom and replace them with facilitators like they do in college in ITV courses....One facilitator for several classrooms with limited personnel at the actual school.

Before you just blow this off, please do your own research. We are not against the teachers, we are against common core coming into our schools and taking away local control.

Concerned, I can only hope that the majority of voters see you for what you are.

You're a nut and a chronic complainer, and you don't know what you're talking about.

GrisGris -

Are the following statements true?

1.) Property taxes will go up around 20%.

2.) The school will borrow the maximum allowed.

If these above statements are not true, please put the actual facts. Please do not just say no and resort to name calling because I do not agree with you. Let's have a real discussion.

Thank You.

All you have to do is look at New York City to see what the democrats are doing to school programs that help the poor and minorities. The new democrat mayor is shutting down charter schools that help the poor and minorities who are forced into the failing school systems our children are forced to go to.

Gris Gris you either cannot read or do not understand what you read when it comes to common core and this bond issue. They go hand in hand.

You cretins are making my point.

I knew you would.

Your personal attacks are an indication of the depth with which I have sunk my foot into your azzes so many times.

Common Core and our need for new buildings have NOTHING to do with one another!!! Geez people. Have you been to the schools? Have you asked to see examples of space problems, electrical problems, and all around safety issues? Get off Facebook, drive to a school and see for yourselves. The need is real and has nothing to do with the STATE ADOPTED standards. Sikeston schools HAVE to use the standards. They aren't a district decision. Wake up and stop being so ignorant. Educate yourself. Please.

The governor and commissioner of elementary and secondary education have given the green light on CC. Neither the House nor Senate had any say, so they're trying to get their say in now.

But make no mistake, CC and the bond issue have nothing to do with each other which is the point of this thread. I know some are simply ignorant about this, but some are simply lying.

the buildings are old & need to be safe for the children to attend
NO BOND NO COMMON CORE

The issues may be separate and different, but I say "NO" to both of them. Many residents of Sikeston are saying no as well. This will not pass, and common core will be thrown out by the legislature soon. Then, back to locally controlled education and productive school days.

I'll tell you one damn thing, they aren't getting my vote! My first grader came home today telling me to vote yes for new schools. Excuse me!! This is my 7 yr old child and they should be ashamed having my son pass along their bullshit message and tell me how to vote. They are pushing the message thru our kids and pointing out all that is wrong in the school now. I'm not saying improvements are not needed because they are. I will not vote for anything that will help push common core further into our schools. Jay Nixon signed Missouri up before the text was even completed and in print for him to review. It's all about money. My child has no price tag!! I'm outraged!! I know there is a group of moms here in sikeston rallying against the core. I would appreciate a way to contact some of you and join the fight. If we don't continue to fight this, our kids are going to lose.

Wow, that's crazy that they're using students! I wonder how they're brainwashing seniors who are 18 at SHS into voting yes?! Please continue to speak out about the use of the students! I'm still shocked!!

YES!!! High school students who are old enough to vote are being asked to register and vote yes. One teacher even went as far to ask if they had younger siblings in school and stressed the importance of their yes vote for them. Sikeston will stop at nothing to get their way. None of them are worried about the actual education. Mind boggling.
