But a South Jordan School district won't be nearly responsive enough for
the needs of my community! We need more local control!I propose we
declare the "my house" school district. That way, I know that all the
administrators will be working for the best interest of my children, and my
children alone.Just as long as we can keep paying the teachers
$20,000 per year....
Here we go again. This could get ugly.
The only people that a new school district would help are the newly hired
administrators that will make lots of money. Go to a district office and check
the high salaries and the number of people working there.
Everybody wants their own little kingdom. This is embarrassing. Didn't
people learn anything at all with the JSD and Canyons split? Obviously not.
The people who should decide are the taxpayers. It is the taxpayer who will
provide the money to educate our children. If South Jordan can provide BETTER
education at a reasonable cost, then South Jordan SHOULD have its own school
district. If South Jordan citizens are paying taxes and their taxes are a
disproportional amount of the Jordan School District's revenue, then Jordan
School District should fix that problem. Perhaps the biggest reason to leave
the Jordan School District is the outlandish proposal to increase taxes
dramatically that was defeated by the voters.We need schools.
Schools cost money. The schools are not doing the job expected. They are
failing to teach our children.
