Letter: Time to prioritize school budgets, trim fat, he says
TO THE EDITOR:
We have a non-prioritized spending problem in this state.
Madison has given us a $5 billion deficit this year. Our school district is approximately $1 million in the hole, maybe more.
Regardless of the economy, government and schools keep a negative balance sheet. Only by accounting gimmicks, which would put a taxpayer in jail, are they able to make the accounts look positive. The taxpayer is forced to fork out the dough and that by a "gun" to his head.
