    u00a0I sincerely disagree. Education is not just the simple transfer of information and any view similar to that will ruin our chances at having a well-educated younger generation. It’s also quite astonishing that adults, who had the benefit of these courses, are sending the message that the young people don’t need these or we can’t afford them. I thought the idea was to have your children go beyond you and accomplish even more in life. Let’s lift up our children, not restrict their opportunities.

    Schools dont need all the frills, extras, & teachers they already have anyway.nnI think schools should be thereu00a0to teach children education, not sports, band, driving, or even things like football.nHave one teacher to a subject, & au00a0principle, cook & kitchen help, & a janitor.nnThe Amish do it, & their more intelligent that most of us. They use hands on skills.nnSchools nowdays are a place for kids to show off new clothes. This has been a long time coming, but finally got here. I would like to see Mt Vernon schools cut their staff in half. Education isnt everything. Working hard & using muscles is how to bring inu00a0the bacon. Its been proven for centuries.u00a0

    That wasn’t so hard now….was it? In all times, especially economically tough times, government supported concerns should live within their means and stop asking the citizens struggling to live within their means to give up more.
