I’d like to thank my fellow citizens for agreeing with me and voting no on the recent levy. I am extremely disgusted and disappointed in the Centralia educators and the school board for giving in so easily to their demands.
The teachers could have, and frankly should have, accepted the state funds alone as raises, if they truly cared about the young minds entrusted to their care.
Instead, a money grab was performed and the district ended up spending money they knew they didn’t have rather than enforce the children’s rights to learn and stand up to them.
I wonder if any of the board members would change their votes if they could go back in time now that they know what they did was wrong?
I doubt it as the board members still defend the terrorist teachers using the children of this community to leverage their own twisted desires to this day. One of the excuses the they used to justify their money grab was spending their own money on supplies.
I laugh at this notion as each year I see the supplies lists pop up at retailers that parents are expected to buy for the classroom. Seems like a tax deduction for job expenses is an option, but I’m not a CPA. I won’t even get started in on the fact that the teachers still impede on family time with homework that really should be done in class on school time.
Anyway, thank you fellow voters for striking down this extra tax burden the district tried to pass off to us without taking a stand when they should have. Perhaps the teachers should get together and vote to give the district back the money that they didn’t deserve in the first place.
