The High Cost of Education in Croydon

During our town meeting in March, I encouraged town residents to reject the school budget based in part due to the fact that fuel prices were expected to rise. My husband encouraged the rejection of the budget based on excessive spending. I wonder for those who supported the tax warrants, increased taxes and increased spending if they have any regrets about their decisions. We would like to hear from you.

We have said time and time again schools have a spending problem and they waste money. Sadly it appears that they waste money here in Croydon too. Our district is paying for kids who live out of district, costing taxpayers hundreds of dollars. Dollars I am sure that could be used towards rising fuel prices, food, college funds and/or retirement.

Public schools are government schools.
