Letter To The Editor


To the Editor,

The Northwood School budget. Try to keep in mind that it is what got me interested in the School Board to begin with. So what are the issues? First and foremost  it includes kids, our kids. We have a diminishing student count in a school built for 600. We are working on a budget year when the count will be around 370. The overhead, heat, maintenance, electricity etc. doesn’t change whether it is 600 or 370 students. Unions. Laws. The chasm.


I am often, practically everyday, reminded of the huge chasm of difference on what is fair. The difference of what is fair to those who take from taxpayers and those paying the taxes is Grand Canyon in proportion. $300 bats, $28 dustpans or $124 stools are fair to the one side, 14 student classroom sizes, extra bodies everywhere, boy could I go on, is fair. Lines and lines of dues and fees, books and periodicals, awesome benefits, expense after expense. A $20,124 average student cost is fair? No, not to me.


However it is not the Administration or the SAU’s fault that we have too big a school. As poor State policies, (exorbitant business taxes and very high electricity rates) chase businesses and our children out of NH, those of us who stay are left with the burdens. It is going to get worse.


But that does not mean that the Administration, SAU, and School Board should just hide their heads in the sand. If we do not get ahead of this, the outcome will be the same as several years ago. An overreaction by the Board that did hurt the educational process. We need to look at every cost, those I mentioned and personnel. Sooner than later. And after all that we spend, are they getting an adequate education?

We appreciate the support we receive each year to make this program possible, thank you.
