Letter: Act 46 is what we have to work with
The Act 46 committee has made every attempt to protect our community schools from closing and to give individual towns an equal say in decisions that impact the educational system in our community. Rest assured that the state will impose some form of this legislation upon us. If so it is likely that we will have a representative board with Bennington holding 67 to 75 percent of the seats and will have full control over the destiny of our schools. If we vote yes to our model, we have a whole lot more say in the outcome.
Is it perfect? Nothing out of Montpelier ever is. The only question is: Do you want the clowns from up north to define your community or do you want some control over your own destiny? I voted yes. Now It's up to you.
