What I don't understand is why this school district never seems to do anything for the children. Scotia-Glenville School District always seems to have the money to buy new buses,create new jobs and do all this alleged needed work on buildings and fields. I have three children in this school system and as far as I am concerned, it is a joke. I have been to the highschool and I don't see why the athletic field needs to be replaced especially with an artificial terf. Give me a break, In fact, GIVE THE TAXPAYERS A BREAK. This school district needs to start doing things for the children it is supposed to be educating instead of creating useless jobs and "keeping up with the Jones'"type of mentallity. All you ever see is taxes going up and up. Then for the priveledge of paying higher taxes, you as the parent get to keep sending in money for this and that and this and that(i.e. alleged books they need and party money and encils and tissue). I don't know what happended to schools since I went to school, but teachers supplied paper and pencils and even contributed during parties. Seems to me the teachers themselves have become lazy and then want us to work with our children half the night afterschool working on what they should have learned during the six hour schoolday. So, bottom line is, if you like paying higher taxes with less education, keep continuing to vote "YES" on these rediculous expenses.
