Re: “McKinley boosters plead case” (TNT, 5-6).
By all appearances, the Tacoma School District cannot sustain the current level of spending in the second half of 2011 and beyond. Leadership of Tacoma schools have been responsible and brought forward multiple solutions to a difficult situation.
We don’t have the money to support our current system; cuts must be made. When you don’t have enough money in your personal life, you eliminate things, right? Instead of focusing on how they can move forward in a way that holds on to the values they want to retain for their children (albeit a different setting), parents are spending all of their energy making posters, having rallies and making lots of noise. That sense of entitlement is frankly wearing me out.
There is no easy solution, and there will be disappointments. Get over it, folks, and move forward in support of our leaders, teachers and students.
