Montpelier erodes local control
The state has taken over control of our schools. Act 153 has gutted our local control at Cavendish Town Elementary School and around Vermont. We in Vermont have a tradition of rugged individualism. This new law flies in the face of tradition, common sense and is the wrong direction for good schools for our children. You and I live here, some of us have children in Cavendish and others have grandkids in school; whether or not you have kids in our school system, this our school, not Montpelier’s.
This act has caused big increases in costs! Mandated positions by the Legislature are the main problem with this new law. My question to you, are you good with the loss of your local control of the education of your children?
