“Among a slew of proposals, the commission also wants the state to give the Red Clay School District about $6 million and temporary authority to bump up property taxes. The goal is to bolster the district so it can absorb Wilmington students and schools currently served by the Christina School District.”
“A property tax reassessment would also help Red Clay handle the influx of new students, the report says. Until that happens, the commission wants to give the Red Clay School Board authority to make small increases to its property tax rate without getting input from voters.”
You know damn well a temporary $$$$ cash infusion will be permanent and reassessment of property will set the stage to unseat “every” legislator serving within Red Clay’s boundries.
If we’re going to FUCK with the way we fund traditional schools than we need to fund them like Votechs! Let the legislators set the property rates like they do with votechs.
God help the senior citizens living on fixed income and the impact on local businesses will cost JOBS!
Perhaps we need teachers and administrators to start paying their fari share in healthcare cost! Red Clay’s adminstrators receive a rasie every year while employees in the private sector goes 3-4 years without a raise. And perhaps we need to end healthcare coverage for state legisalators. They all act like volunteers serving the community and yet it a big pay day for many with all the extra $$$$$$$ serving on committees.
Red Clay school board elections coming May 2016 and I think we need a sacriifical lamb to let other board members they are next! EACH AND EVERYONE!
