We read with dismay an article concerning the proposed dollar increase in the children's lunch program combined with the depletion of the staff involved that influence the deficit. The day before, an announcement of the appointment of the new superintendent to replace Callan. While we think the right choice was made, the salary and perks are exorbitant. Where is the equality?
While many students may be denied their lunches, learning tools, etc., one man and his family will be languishing in luxury with their house, moving and car allowances, health benefits and eventually, a generous retirement package. Is this really excellence in education?
For the superintendent and his assistant, it is, while our children (and our own are long gone from the system) suffer the sacrifices. Come on school board, let's get some priorities going in the right direction here!
