When the half cent sales tax was passed the pros and cons on the ballot were small class room sizes and increased technology. That is what was voted on. We have exceptional teachers already. Our school board does not hire the cheapest teachers or teachers right out if college. They hire the best teachers out there. If one teacher is taken away from the fourth grade class at Strawberry Park Elementary school the class sizes would be 31 kids per class! Is that ok for parents? Some of the classrooms can barely accommodate 24 kids let alone 31.
