I agree on the thought that only the property tax is not the way to finance schools. Federal and State and Regional groups should pay for it and the result should be equal amounts of dollars in real purchasing power should available per student.
Yes to the thought that school should continue all year. No harvest time break for everybody.
Yes to the thought that the school should see to the physical welfare of the student while at school to the extent of medical care and food as well as teaching.
There should be some way of involving all parents and non parents in the operation of teaching. It is a civic responsibility.
There should be some way of streamling down the bureucracy so there are fewer administrators and more teachers.
There needs to be more involvement with computers as teachers and with a system of the students as teachers of other students.
And there's lots of other problems.
