Check it out; I saw it on the WATE 6 News updates just now. First, Dr. McIntyre says NO on closing our 5 schools, and now the Board has refused to 'contract out' our dedicated, respected and loved custodians...This is a win for our students, teachers and parents...and of course, this vote saved over 300 full-time jobs.

Now, it is up to the Governor and his clueless head of our State Ed Dept to put those millions back in our public schools. For-profit,private, charter, tuition schools are for wealthy families. The 'vouchers' are just a "come-on" to get parents tricked into moving their kids to "better schools". Or maybe we can just demand that the County Mayor sell...oh, say...$7 million more in County property and balance the Schools' budget.

Awesome! Thanks School Board members!
