  • I am one that is open to anything that would bring security and buidling improvements to our corporation. People will belly ache about taxes but really... what else are we to do?

  • Here in Charlotte, the whole county is one big school system. As one of the only cities in the nation that is growing exponentially and people are still buying up houses, the school board naturally keeps asking for more money. They did not get their request this year and as a result are getting rid of something like 26 assistant principal positions. If this would have happened the year I got out of college, I'm pretty sure I would have had to move to Houston, TX to find a job.

  • Several years ago there was a state court decision in Arkansas to the effect the property tax system there violated Brown vs. Board of Education. If my children's school corporation or district has less per student to spend, it is separate as is keeping with long tradition. But it is equal?

  • Ou schools are not equal. Look at the condition of Eastside or Meridian vs. Jackson Township.

  • I can only comment on Eastside E. It is deplorable condition. Anyone who has been in it must see how badly it needs an upgrade.

  • But yet, we have a group of people willing to fight the needed school improvements. They want to build new schools and not update what is here.

  • But, sassypants, are you willing to pay an increase in taxes for that upgrade?

  • C DAD

    There would not be an increase. The bond on Northview is up and your taxes wouls tay the same.

    And YES I am willing to pay the increase. It involves security and what price do you put on your childs security??? My children are worth me paying the same amount of tax.
