Apology to School Kids

   As was published today in the West Bend Daily News:   

     If I could apologize to the kids, girls especially, in the WBSD on behalf of Neitzke’s administration and Board, I would. I would say I’m sorry we don’t care about your innocence and discomfort during discussions of intimate sexual issues and condom demos in mixed company. I understand most of you probably want to hide under your seat, wishing you could have an open discussion with girls and a teacher of your own sex. The decision has been made by us; we know what’s best for you. I’m sorry for the tearing away of your natural inhibitions and modesty during sex ed with 13 year-old boys. I am sorry no one cares enough to bring these discussions into gender separate classes, which easily could be done. And boys, I am sorry you can’t have a man class and talk about what makes a real man.
     I would apologize to parents for not allowing them parental permission for teaching condoms to their pre or barely teen child. I realize that the state neither recommends nor mandates teaching condoms and the pill, but we know what is best. I’m sorry we can’t allow you parents to make decisions for your child when it comes to condoms in the classroom, but we can ask parental permission for your child to watch an R rated movie during school. If you didn’t opt-out your child, they will be enrolled. We don’t believe in actual parental permission for this.
     What we really want from you parents and kids is your money. Just as your modesty is falling apart, so are our buildings. Paying for a referendum will be a burden around your neck, but it must be done. The schools are bankrupt. We want your modesty and your money. We don’t care what you say.

2012 to 2029 Referendum Debt Levy with both 25 Year Plan and Badger Included

The "borrowing amount" below is for the referendum question that will be on the November 6th ballot. The graph below shows the annual debt levy with Badger (just begun to pay for that referendum) and the potential new referendum. As of June 30, 2012 the principle is $21,575,000 and the interest is $7,729,401.00. If the Nov. referendum passes, the debt will be increased by more than $31 million, principle and interest.
