Important Community Meeting
The Monroe County Community School Corporation will have two public meetings this week to discuss the proposed cuts due to state revenue decline. The recommended cuts by the administration need to be reviewed and responded to by the citizens of Monroe County. If the cuts are accepted it will put our school district in a position to not serve the reason it was created. There can be no acceptable reason to compromise our educational system, as it is the basis for the future of the community and the region. If we as citizens don't let the leadership know what we want then we have no one to blame but ourselves. From the list of proposed cuts it is clear that the current leadership is taking the easy way out. The suggestion we have made to reduce the length of the school year is not even on the list of items to consider. The current list of cuts is like death by a 1,000 cuts!
