We must focus on creating great educators

Public Education is the bedrock of Democracy. We do not begrudge paying taxes that make this a better community or nation. Keeping great teachers and drawing new teachers to Alpena must be priorities of the Board of Education. It’s bad enough after teacher made a significant cut to their own salaries that the board chose to make further pay cuts without even involving teachers’ input. That resolve on the part of the board seems as divisive as it is pompous!

I am 76, living on a limited budget, and I have no school children of my own, but only those of the community to care about. We all in time get back what we have sacrificed for our future generations.
