The West Branch Local schools income tax levy is on all citizens' minds, as I read the news articles with activities and volunteers working hard to bring it to the forefront of everyone's information. We are well aware of financial controversies.
As a teacher for 30 years and now in my golden years with families of grandchildren, I have to retrace the many teachers and students who have successfully reached good years of employment thanks to a background of sufficient funding that brought them to success.
We all are facing financial tough decisions.
Ask ourselves, can we support our levy to the amount it needs to maintain our previous level of sufficient funds or choose to do anything less.
Our children's education is as important to them as was the quality of education we enjoyed. The levy amount is needed and teachers and students deserve the best we can offer.
