    As always, when levies fail, the no voters are “short sighted, hate kids, are against education”… I could go on and on. Businesses are leaving better school districts than this, it has more to do with the economy than the schools. Oh, and I might add that property values are dropping in better districts than this one. Those arguments to try to pass a levy are old and tired. Taxpayers are at their breaking point, and no one seems to care. I personally think this levy is more about saving jobs than it is about educating kids. Cost cutting should have started at the top years ago.

    Well as a parent of children in our schools one being in middle school I want to know why should we as taxpayers pay for the freshwater drama it is funny that we are 2.5 million dollars short and that is what it cost to have a bunch of lawyers do nothing but sit back take the money and he still got fired . Since he lost let him pay them so our kids can play sports and not run the streets and get into trouble. And for those that say that its the parents fault when they get in trouble you need to open your eyes alittle wider and see things that are going on in this town DRUGS are everywhere but if you ask our police force they will tell you there not which is a line of crap.

    yea go ahead and vote no that just means kids will be getting into things that will make you wish you would have voted for it unless you believe our great police force when they say that DRUGS is not a problem in Mount Vernon which is a line of ….

    Once again the short sighted views of the residents of MTV have come to fruition. Once again the children will pay the price. I am all for a well run district that lives within its means. But the children of this town deserve to have a great quality education. By reducing the number of teachers we will be placing a larger strain on the teachers we have left by increasing class size, teaching more classes. Which results in less time being able to help the kids that truly need the help. nnA great school district also brings new businesses to town. There is a reason fredricktown has seen new factories show up there over the past decade. They have a great school district. and they have for many years. nnMTV has never been a town that cares about education. If they did they would have passed the levy. What a shame. MTV you are losing more and more people by the year.
