State already spends a fortune on schools
Let’s get an accounting before money is borrowed, as proposed by the Smart Schools Bond Act. Western New Yorkers pay some of the highest school taxes in the nation. Why? Tell us where the money is going.
All local schools need to post in The Buffalo News the money they receive and list where it is being spent. We need to be able to see in print all school revenue, including the revenue that the lottery is generating. I am betting if these numbers were posted, we would find school administrators and teachers receive the bulk of the money in salaries, benefits and retirement for teachers.
No wonder there are no funds for new schools, Internet service, laptops and high-tech items to assist our students into the future.
