Voice: Upset about McCabe abandoning class-size reduction

July 27, 2001

I am so upset with the school board of McCabe School and its decision to do away with class-size reduction. Don't you realize that you are punishing the kids who live in the district?

The board has said that it is for financial reasons but this is a district where no matter what teachers request they receive. Stop the waste and the state bonus for class-size reduction will be enough for the necessities.

I can see why the school would allow brothers and sisters of children already attending on an interdistrict permit to attend. I cannot understand why you are allowing entire families with three and four children to begin attending now. Don't risk the quality of education the kids living in the district have received in the past by overcrowding their classrooms.
