Vote to keep schools in Ravenna strong

Published: April 20, 2014 4:00 AM

I am writing in support of Issue 2 for our schools and our children, the 4.9-mill Ravenna School District levy. This levy is vital to our children, our community and our future.

We live in a wonderful community and our children are our future leaders.

In order to remain a wonderful community we must maintain our school buildings. Some of our schools are 40 to 50 years old and are in great need of repairs and not patch jobs.

People don't want to live in a community that cannot maintain an excellent school system.

We need this levy to fix our schools so they can serve our students well. Please invest in our children, our community, our property values. The future of our community is in our hands on May 6. Vote "Yes" on Issue 2.

Why do democrats equate more money with keeping schools strong?  Why do private schools do such a better job educating students with less money and zero money from taxes? How do private schools manage to do this with so few administrators? Why do parents pay to send their children to private schools AND pay taxes for public schools? Why do an increasing number of parents pay school taxes and home school their children?

Could it possibly be that the liberal premise of more money is needed to make schools strong is not true? Could it possibly be that a highly effective education is dependant on something besides more tax money?
