Busing revelations at Town Meeting

I hope all of you who witnessed last night's TM were as surprised as we were to hear the SC Chairman say they didn't want the money, could return the money or spend it somewhere else. I went into last nights meeting thinking about the kids who had to make their own way to school and all the sacrifices parents had to make. But after hearing Mr. Bower speak, the choice was clear.

And if you noticed, school choice came up a few times from the floor. It's time for the SC to do a quick feasibility study, with their software program, to determine what if any savings could be seen if school choice were eliminated.

School choice has got to be costing this town a bundle. We no longer have that bundle to spend on this. If a parent wants their kid to go to a school other than the one closest to thier home, then the parent should have to pay for the transportation of that child. No need to do away with school choice. Lets just make it an option, but one you pay for, just like we pay for upgrades on everything else we buy.

Pretty sad to think in a town like Framingham we can not afford to get our kids to school in a safe and sound manner. What does that say about the powers that be in this town? If you are not state rep Jim, I hope you consider doing something on the town level. The incumbents here have got to go too.
