If we think back, just a few short months ago, our Hamilton County Commission (aka, taxpayers) about how desperately the school system was in need of funds for school improvement.
Just this week, our school system has come out with the stupid harebrained idea to change the name of the Hamilton County Department of Education to some ridiculous thing like "Public Schools of Hamilton County" or something similar. A person has to wonder where this scheme originated.
Was it the new superintendent?
How much money will this cost?
If the schools are in such desperate need of funds, how can they (we, the taxpayers) afford this?
This unneeded, unnecessary change will cost the school board (us, the taxpayers) thousands to tens of thousands of dollars.
Maybe those desperately needed millions weren't needed that bad after all.
We need to remember this next year when the school system comes "hat in hand" begging the County Commission (we, taxpayers) for millions more dollars.
It's time we tell the beggars enough is enough. Maybe they'll use the money more wisely... Like being good stewards of our, the taxpayers' money.
To quote Nancy Reagan, "just say no".
