Bag-gate shows time for change on school board

-A A +A

The proposed purchase of two $585 mailbags is just a sample of the wasteful spending of the school board, and they seen to be untroubled by this expense. The post office will furnish bags for free. Makes us wonder what more they are wasting tax payer dollar on.
Roane County News did a wonderful job in reporting this — many thanks. It is definably time for a change on the school board.
Roane County School Board asked the County Commission for a tax increase. The School Board just can’t operate within a budget. 
If they over spend they just ask to raise the county tax rate. The Board doesn’t have a revenue problem it has a spending problem .   
Right now 40 cents of every dollar goes to  government at either the federal, state or local level, and the school board wants to raise that.
Most of these board members have been serving on this Board of Education for years.  How can you expect change if you keep doing the same thing year after year?
