The deal breaker for me is that the ballot doesn't guarantee the things I want for my child's education.
I have asked myself why the ballot was written the way it was when so many parents stood up at the school board meetings and talked about the Barton reading program, class size reduction and other programs.
I don't know the answer and it doesn't look like the school board is going to give one.
I'll vote yes when the school district writes a ballot that offers some real numbers. Maybe they will do that the next time around.
But for now, I have to vote NO.
