With all the concern and discussion about the county budget and education costs, School Board Vice-Chair John Stevens puts the question at hand directly to the citizens of Loudoun.
I have now heard from several inside sources that the Board of Supervisors is receiving emails in astonishing quantities imploring them to cut the LCPS budget dramatically. There seems to be only two possible ways to handle cuts of the magnitude we may be facing: slash teacher raises and increase class sizes. If you think those cuts can come from Mandarin Chinese, lacrosse programs and Dr. Hatrick's salary, you'd better try again with your calculator because the money isn't there. It's in our classrooms. Take the money away, that's where the cuts will be felt.Links are below:
If you can't walk up to your child's teacher and say "I will not support your pay raise this year, and I want more children in class with my own," you should write to your representative on the Board of Supervisors and let them know that you support full funding of Loudoun County Public Schools. - Our Loudoun Schools
