Perspectives: 67/365

Ralph Higonbothem (Taylorville School Superintendent)

As if I didn’t already have enough on my plate,
Rising real estate taxes,
State levied accountability issues,
Seventy percent of the budget tied up in salary and benefits,
Employees fighting over lunches in the break room,
School security concerns,
I have a lot going on
Without worrying about parents hating coaches,
Music teachers hating parents who hate coaches,
And still no plan for bringing them together
Or what to do about the fight over a stolen lunch
In the office refrigerator.

Eight Bars, Music Friends of Sports, and hangry staff,
I’ve about had enough of this business,
This business of education.
