It's not the $294 extra dollars a year that gets me. It's the $10K plus per student that sticks in my craw. Where the heck is all this money going and with so many new buildings plus decreasing enrollment, why do they need more?

The reality is that schools are under funded. Why is it that you pay the most important profession the least amount of money. If the citizens of this country would realize that teachers are our most important resource, they will pay them what someone in the corporate makes with similar educational background and experiences! Until then, you will get the poorest quality teachers and those of us that have left the profession will apply our skills in the corporate world and make all the money!

If we want a better nation the schools need the money to pay for the talent to both teach and MANAGE the schools. If there is one thing I've learned in the corporate world it is that people capable of providing quality direction cost quite a bit of money. It is what our schools lack and what they need to fix first.

Hey Jim..on another note, I heard you were speaking at the art museum?

isn't the public school budget a matter of public record? they need to publish a simplified version of it in the paper. then there might be a little accountability when election time rolls around again.

who's paying the Bengals' salaries? the reds' salaries? the kids' Nike shoes, etc. etc.
It isn't that money isn't available, it's where the people of Cincinnati are CHOOSING to put it - maybe all we had to do was CLEAN the old ballpark; the bridges are more in danger of collapsing than the ballparks were, no?

maybe the schools could beg for money like the churches do every week (and whine about having to provide "service")

maybe we can get China to build more US homeless shelters

where's the tooth fairy when you need her? (obviously precludes the need for a mayor, a senator, an attorney general, etc.)

Jim, as a long time fan, I'm a little disappointed. Whether or not this particular tax levy (CPS) is reasonable or not, the fact schools have a traditionally difficult time passing levies is well known.
The number of schools who misues their funds and make decisions that seem irresponsible is low. The majority of our schools do a quality job for students.
Students are our future. With such a strong following, I'd hope you'd use your influence to help students. Public schools are not afforded the luxury of private schools that can raise tuition to meet their needs.

Everyone is missing the boat on this one. With the new crisis of Foreclosures The school systems better wise up. When School districts depend on a funding source that is in crisis It is bond to be doomed. What is needed is not new levies but new and creative thinking to fund our schools. The tax and spend way of thinking is no longer cutting it.

maybe we can use the stadiums to house the homeless in the offseasons? we'll need to add a toyroom for the kids...
how much has the NFL spent just this week televising/defending the Vick issue? we can add a 'hall of fame' to the stadium too !

before you can get money from the government, you have to get them to stop stealing from you first!!

IF you really cared about teachers, you wouldn't send your kids to school drunk or high or pregnant; you would send them to school dressed in decent clothes with a clean appearance; you would make them/help them with their homework so they do it every day; you would teach them how to read, you would take them to libraries, you would help them with their finances; you would teach them respect for their teachers and not how to verbally and physically threaten them; you would tell them to leave their guns at home; you wouldn't buy guns and drugs for them; you would model a drug-free fraud-free lifestyle for them; you would teach them courtesy, manners, and cheerfulness and helpfullness; you would teach them how to serve instead of demanding to be served; you would teach them to love this country; you would discipline them and spend time with them; the educational system is not a babysitting service, a psyche ward, a prison, a day camp, or a dumping ground for all the things you parents fail to do through your own negligence, selfishness, greed and pride (the foundation of this country)

Jim, just wanted to let you know that I canceled my subscription to the Enquirer because of your idiotic "editorial cartoons". Your liberal drawings sicken me.
