Charlottesville City Schools Asking for More Money

"Wade says if the funding isn't approved, students will not suffer substantially this time."

Then why are you concerned?

A 10% cut? Big deal. Get rid of some benefits and pay raises like the private sector.

My expenses keep going up, does my employer pay up the differences ???? When does this stop, work within the budget.This is not fair to those that have no children in the school system.

After school tutoring programs. Really? How about some volunteer tutors, perhaps go thru JABA and see if some of our seniors could volunteer to assist. Unless, of course, this is really just a babysitting service for parents who don't want to pay for after school care? I'm sure there are other ways our children can get the extra attention and tutoring without having it provided by the schools.
