We have to make people aware that our State is run by public employee Unions and we need court casesRead More like today which ruled that the California Teacher Tenure rules are unconstitutional so that we can change laws and vote people out of office who do not represent the interests of the public who pay the taxes.

Something that is interesting to note is that high school grads are going to four year universitiesRead More and studying subject that isn't marketable. While on the other hand you have people getting vocational training at vocational schools that essentially guarantees them a job out of school that will make them 'x' amount of money. So it isn't that college degrees are worthless, some are. It is also said that sometimes trade school is the right choice!

Maybe I should. I'll use the proposed $15.00 minimum wage that's actually been passed in a fewRead More locations. It's minimum wage work.

Anytime they propose and approve an increase, it's an increase. Just because we receive state aid toRead More cover all or a portion of it, doesn't mean the increase is limited to what shows up on the property tax bill. Our state government doesn't print money. State aid is taxpayer funded. The total school tax levy for the 2013-14 school year is $22,005,385.00. Of that, $846,361.00 would represent the increase over last year's budget, based on the 4.47% figure. That's the actual budgeted increase in spending by the School District for the 2013-2014. This was based on information available at the School District of WFB website www.wfbschools.com. I'd post a link to the PDF copy of the budget summary, but it keeps getting cut off when I try.

Projected total enrollment (weighted enrollment not indicated for the 13-14 year) is 3163. TheRead More budgeted tax levy per student would be $6957.13, which includes an increase of $297.68 per student this year over last year. Weighted enrollment (which counts half day kindergarten students as .5 full time students), would produce higher per student figures.
