Ginger Green obviously does not value the recruiting and retention of qualified teachers. She also failed to mention the teachers here are finally being paid close to the same as someone teaching on the Front Range (where the cost of living is less overall).

As a parent and homeowner – who also is paying increased taxes – I believe that we can now have the chance to keep excellent and experienced teachers, which means we may have kids who may learn even more, become better citizens etc. And of course these children will eventually be making decisions for the country you live in. I hope to God they have the good education to prepare them to make wise decisions.

Ginger Green I’m sure if you called any one of the schools you could visit them and really see what a teacher does for a day, week, or longer. You’ll see the budgets they are on both at school and at home. You will then be able to make an educated opinion. You’ll be surprised, I was. You are right about one thing. Nothing is free.
