The Washington County School Board will hold a meeting Wednesday, Nov. 3 at 5:30 p.m. for public comment on a new high school. Do you think a new school should be built?

New High School

The more money that government doles out the more the local politicians try to divvy it up for their little projects one and all , unions included . Buildings do not teach our children to read and write . Learning can be attained in a barn if the child has an inquisitive imagination and a teacher to provide the common sense that goes along with that learning . New schools are a commodity today in this society of ours and the education of our children , although the amount of money spent on each child , has become one of the most expensive costs in the world . Still our children have constantly been below other countries in math , science and other valuable subjects that these kids need to make it in today`s technological world . Until we hold these teachers accountable for what they claim to teach and what students learn then why does a new building hold the key to the next Einstein . Unions will still control a new school just like the old and our children will once again be the victim . Parents more than anyone need to take a stand and say " no more " . New schools are not the answer .
