Time to act, for everyone to pay fair share for good schools
Terry Partin says he's willing to pay his fair share to support most valuable resource. Asks others if they are
Comment on money for schools, from Terry Partin
It's time we stop making excuses and act.How many times have you heard people complain that Adair County can't ever move ahead, because our leaders could not agree or work together for the good of the community.
I am amazed at how many people seem content to let a few people speak for the future of our children and grandchildren. The opportunity for a quality education does not rest solely in the hands of a school board, teachers and staff. This is everyone''s business.
Will you be satisfied to sit back and let our young people enter the job market unprepared to complete for jobs, all for the sake of saving a few tax dollars.
We pay taxes for many various reasons. Some of those tax supported efforts are more worthy than others. In my opinion none is more important than educating our future leaders. If you want to draw the line on taxes this is not the place to draw it.
I've heard the excuses presented by the excusiologists who say we closed our county schools to save money to help run the schools. I know many who attended one room schools and succeeded. but we have to admit that we live in a different world today.
I'm willing to pay my fair share of taxes to support our most valuable resource. How about you, parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles.
