Letters to the Editor: Pay more now for our children’s future

To the editor:

Last fall I was elected to the RSU #18 schoolboard representing the town of China. This has given me the opportunity to see inside the complex mechanism in running a large school system. Today’s education involves much more than I had experienced growing up. School today involves knowing each individual student, their character and their roadblocks in learning. Hiring social workers and drug councilors add to the crucial formation of these young minds. If we fail our mission to direct these young people to a bright beautiful future, then our social workers and/or drug councilors will follow them into their adult lives. Paying a little more now for extra support needed for success will be well worth the investment. Our children are our future, let’s teach and support them accordingly.

Please vote yes for education this June.
