Reason #7 for not supporting the Olentangy levy

According to Responsible Olentangy Citizens, Sue Mahler, OFK core member emeritus, acting as district finance chair, "reported [to the school board] that the sooner we get to this number [student/teacher ratio of 15:1), the sooner OLSD can save millions."

Instead, the district is lowering the ratio in each year of the most-recent five-year forecast.

How do the current heads of OFK spin that little nugget?


Note: Why do the folks at OFK simply fall in line with the Wade Lucas / Julie Feasel nonsense?

Tangent--

Teachers want to be accepted as professionals, but the attire I observe each time I go to volunteer in my daughter's classroom is anything but professional.

I grasp the concept of going casual for worthy causes, but seeing teachers in items of clothing (skin tight leggings, sandals, etc) makes it very difficult to accept them as professionals worth hefty salaries considering they work 180 days a year.
