Save Our Schools!

Whereas the Federal Government of the United States, Maine State Government, and the various municipalities around the state are imposing a false crisis on our school systems, leading to cuts in funding for our schools and layoffs to our educators;

Whereas the top 1% are the richest they've been in 50 years, and pay the lowest taxes they have in 50 years;

Whereas tax breaks are still being given out to corporations by our Federal, State, and Local governments, shifting the tax burden onto the shoulders of low- and middle-income families;

Whereas education is not an expense to be cut, but an investment in our future;

We the undersigned call on our elected officials at every level of government to take immediate action, to roll back cuts to faculty, increase taxes for the wealthiest among us, and invest in our schools.

And if they do not take action, we will see that they are replaced by those who will take action.

    Public education in rural Maine is suffering from neglect while property tax payers are beyond the breaking point. Divestment to fund charters for the few who want only to escape the problems charters will not and cannot address. Strangely, administration nests are feathered more than ever, as local school Boards were wiped out by the consolidation law.
