The Pike County board of education plans to increase the maintenance and operations millage rate to make up for a drop in the total value of Pike’s property tax digest, fund needed maintenance projects and restore instructional days to the student calendar.
What, are they nuts? In these very bad economic times Duncan wants more money? Why doesn't he give back his county paid income and ALL of his perks! The same for the rest of the board. For what they do they all should be paying the taxpayers for the privilege of sitting on the board. I for one will raise my voice at all three meetings!!!!
I agree with both of you! It's all about making sure Duncan and all of his misfits get more and more. I'll be so glad when the day comes that all the people come together and get rid of him all the board members and get real people in the school system!
Heck Pike Middle doesn't even have enough text books for their students. So our kids won't be getting books for all their classes. And the school wants more money, for what? It's sure not textbooks or materials, supplies our children need.
What the heck. They want to raise taxes for maintiance and operations. This is a load of crap! I know that in this economic shortfall that we are in now, everyone is having a hard time. and they just keep wanting more.
I want someone to Investigate how much money the schools are spending on there power bills during these 95+ degree days, and water for the children on the buses? versus how many days they give the faculty during the spring, fall, and winter, on there little mini-vacations. Seems to me there has to be a sustancial savings That could be made just by letting them go back later in the year.
We have to figure out something else besides raising the taxes. They are already starting to put there homework on the class website, so that now we are having to provide the ink, and paper, to print off there assignments.
If you are not buying books,and having the household do approx. half of the printing. and the staffs salorys have not increased that much. How can you justify a increase?
