Sounds like some of the theives in Fluvanna that were forced out have found work in Albemarle schools! Let's hope you have the courage to cut bloated teacher salaries to a reasonable level since Fluvanna's so-called leaders do not!

Huck, had you taken the half second to read the post I replied to, it was criticizing the request for an annual increase in the school budget.

Without an annual increase, the school budget declines in real terms, and with more pupils the budget per pupil is further reduced.

The taxation issue was entirely separate to the comment I replied too. It's possible that more taxation would still be required if, for some reason, there was a reduction in Federal funding or, say, the County had new and additional spending commitments. I don't know if either of those is the case, and as I said neither changes the need for the budget to grow if there is inflationary pressure and an increase in the student body.

We should all now thank God (or whomever) that we don't live in Cyprus or Europe.
