Dear Editor,

This is a letter to encourage support for the mill levy override proposed by the Re-2 School District. I have heard people questioning the need for such a thing.

As a teacher, I have come to realize the need for more funding in our schools. It is unfair to students to not have top-notch teachers, nice facilities, and a positive learning environment. Public education is important, and in order to achieve these things, citizens have to pay.



It impacts our community in a negative way to not put schools first.

Kids only give back to the community what the community puts in it for them. They are our future, and if we don’t work to fund their education, our future looks pretty grim. By not approving mill levy overrides, the public is sending a message that schools are not a priority in the community. Schools, in fact, should be our No. 1 priority!



With the economic downturn, and the state’s budget crisis looming, now is the time we need more support from our communities. This is a one-time tax increase, but the positive impacts will be felt in our communities for years. Please support your community and education. Vote yes on the mill levy override.

Thanks for your time. Remember to support our schools!
