      Money, time patience needed in education

      Changes in education, whether good or bad, come with costs and many are often unfunded mandates from the state or national level that the local districts have to figure out how to pay for.

            Is tax proposal to help or to put off considering another bill?

            It’s good for Oxford and other local and state municipalities to hear the possibility of getting a bit more return on state tax sales funds that are returned from the state. We wonder, though, if it’s part of a plan by state lawmakers to make it easier to continue to ignore a proposal that would allow municipalities to levy their own sales tax in addition to the state-mandated 7 percent? (February 5, 2015, Page 4A)

                    Education needs to be left up to educators

                    There is a growing concern among educators around the state that Legislators feel they’re more qualified than teachers and administrators to decide on how to run schools. We hope our lawmakers think about the overall good of our children and their educations rather than politics. (February 3, 2015, Page 4)
