Ruth Ever: Everyone wins when schoolchildren succeed
To the editor:
There may be many problems with our system at the state and local levels, and none of us wants to pay more taxes, but we can’t try to fix anything on the backs of our children.
They deserve the best education we can give them, which also makes our city stronger. We all win when our children succeed, not just the families directly impacted by this override. Our schools are already operating bare-bones, and we can’t cut any more.
I urge you to vote yes on this override! Together we can make a positive difference.
Ruth Ever is co-chair of the Northampton High School PTO.
