To the Editors:
Memorial Day is a sad day for all. It also can bring thoughts of the coming summer. But not for the students. The kids are being sent off worrying about whether their teachers will still be there when they return in the fall. The Board of Education in their zeal to sell their budget with seemingly endless intimidating newspaper articles has impacted the school children as well as the adults in our community. I don’t think they gave any consideration to students until a high school sophomore attended a BOE meeting and pleaded with them not to fire her teacher. They seemed to be so concerned about getting their budget approved that they didn’t consider the ramifications of their rhetoric.
