From today’s Daily Progress:
A public hearing on Charlottesville Superintendent Rosa Atkins’ proposed $58.1 million budget for fiscal 2008-09 was as over as soon as it started at Thursday’s School Board meeting.
Though no one spoke Thursday, the public will have another chance to comment on the budget on Feb. 21.
It’s a shame to see citizens abdicating their responsibility to themselves, their fellow citizens and the children. Better public schools are one of the absolute best ways to increase property value. Where were the homeowners?
