The Shreveport-Bossier Tea Party has been taking a look at the proposed budget. Go to their website and read the article, it is very informative.
So what does it all mean? It means the Bossier Parish School Board incumbents running for office have proposed a tax increase while sitting on a $20 million surplus, have proposed a budget with a $5 Million deficit, and plan on paying for that deficit with a portion of the surplus.
Tea Party coordinators have requested interviews with all of the candidates for school board. I am very anxious to see the results.
Another question for the school system
I will be looking this week at the issue of parents transferring their kids to a school near their work. Personally, I'm not opposed.
My question is simply why are some people allowed to do this while others are not? The policy on this seems to be as clear as mud, and we are in the process of exploring some actual cases of people who have - and have not - been allowed to make these transfers.
