In these tough economic times, getting back to the basics of education (reading, writing, mathematics) as well as programs to protect health and provide assessment and services as indicated above seem to us to be the priority funding. When the economy improves, we can expand spending to the other programs and in the meantime we hope more a sustainable and equitable funding mechanisms other than basing school revenue on new construction fees and parcel taxes in the most affluent communities will be implemented.
