Many in our current legislative body are working hard to dismantle our public education system with no regard as to the impact on our rural communities. We need to remember this and who they are when we enter the voting booth in 2016. They are not doing the work of "we the people", they are working to further enrich the large corporations that benefit from the private school voucher program.
We must continue reminding our legislators just who they work for
by calling them out whenever possible. This is done at listening
sessions, by making phone calls, and writing letters to the editor
exposing those elected officials to the public. Please take a moment to read a letter to the Cap Times, written by Dick Cates, a rural school board member.
