Re: “Split classes prompt protest, anger,” The Leader, Sept. 17.
Are you kidding me? Regarding parent Stephanie Campbell’s quote, “we are a choice school,” you are right – you chose to send your child there. Do you really expect no split classes or no classes bigger than 20 students?”
Hello – wake up and smell the roses. You and your child are not that special. Do you really believe that “your school” would not fall under the same policies as the rest of the district? Why should all the other schools suffer for one school – especially one that has a declining population? We all pay the same taxes (at least those that own their properties do). Why should one school out of over 130 get special provisions?
All in all, I think people need to realize that districts cannot fund schools having small classes. They need to combine and as far as I have ever known, not one child died as a result of being in a split class.
Come down to Earth – if you want not split classes or no classes bigger than 20, go to private school.
