We teach are kids not to be bullies (well the good parents do) yet that's what most people on here are doing, is tearing everyone down and bullying. Luke you did exactly what she did, posted twice, Why? To be mean? What's the point. I'm not trying to be mean, I just don't understand why people are so nasty to each other for no apparent reason.

If the only people who voted against the levy were the ones who $200 will break, then the levy would have passed with flying colors. Think about it, there are very few people/families in Strongsville that are struggling to the point that $200 a year is going to keep them from eating or getting necessary medication. Those who voted against it need to quit whining about $200 breaking them. When the school system goes to crap, the value of your home will drop by much more than the $6,000 you would pay over the next “30 years”!

rob you must not understand that some of us know the schools just recieved over 38 million less than 6 months ago.To give people, that spend money without reguard to where it comes from, more is simply stupidity. To build buildings when the trend in teaching is to teach online is more stupidity. To take and close buildings and continue to maintain them and not sell them to pay for the needs of the system seems stupid. When will someone start using common sense practices that we in business use to run our schools, cities, states and country?
