Guest Posting: Residents DO support education IF the plan is reasonable!

Over the past few weeks, I have read and heard many comments from residents lambasting their neighbors who might not be supporting the referenda.

A recurring theme seems to be the notion that a vote of "no" is a "sad commentary on Brookfield and education,” that we are shirking our "responsibility to support good schools," or that it will convey the message that we don't "value the education of our children.”

Apparently, the people making these disparaging comments have forgotten that this community just recently supported the building/remodeling of two elementary schools, and that many of our residents have helped to privately support the work of groups like East 2000 & Beyond or BC2.

Our residents do value the education of our children, and they have a proven history of supporting our schools – as long as what is being asked is reasonable and fiscally responsible. To suggest anything less is not only insulting…it is just plain wrong.
