Letter to the Editor - from Wendy Turner

I want to urge everyone to vote “NO” on the tax levy that Morgan School District is proposing.
As a retired teacher of 37 years, I know how important education is.  And one of the most important lessons we can teach is to live within your means by being fiscally responsible and making do with what you have. 
It would be wonderful if we could have everything we want, but that isn’t reality.  We cannot adopt a tax in perpetuity; we don’t know what will happen from year to year.  We mustn’t burden the taxpayers further.  We can’t give what we don’t have.
As test scores show, more money doesn’t equal better education.  We need to demand parent involvement, hold students accountable and focus on basics.
Morgan School Board – do your job and use your intelligence to prioritize projects and programs.  Look to the community for volunteer resources, respect the taxpayer’s limitations and represent ALL our interests.
