Needs to retire. I apologize if my comments seem harsh, but it is reality and when I read the latest article I just had to write. Wake up people. Don't you want your children to get a "GOOD" education?

I am a resident, homeowner and tax payer in Truman. I did not even consider wasting my time to vote to give this school MORE MONEY or not!

16 kids a class sounds like a no brainer. That is average I bet the high school have more then elementary so time to close the doors and spit up the district on the county line.

Have you ever thought "The Grass is Greener"? There comes a time for change and it is better to be proactive than reactive. Do what is best for the kids.You talk about getting 1/2 the kids you lost back, when they leave, the good ones aren't coming back. The ALC students are the one you get back. Let it go, you can't keep hammering people with taxes over a dying thing. If it were a business it would have been closed 20 years ago. Or just follow the lead of our current federal gov, the workers keep footing the bill for the system milkers. That seems like the way of the world these days.
