It seems like every day, in the letters to the editor section, someone is criticizing Superintendent Smith. Ogden School district is running on a deficit, folks. We have a budget to contain. We may not approve of the cuts he is suggesting, I know, as an educator, I cringed at the suggestion of losing our wonderful librarians. But, where do we cut? I'm certain that firing all of the coaches would cause riots.
I don't remember reading any smart suggestions of ways to make wise cuts. I am sure I would have remembered if someone had suggested we raise taxes.
We all have budgets. I would appreciate reading some really positive ideas from financial experts who have given it some real thought.
I'm sure Superintendent Smith would be open to these thoughtful suggestions. Think about it letter writer, what would you do in his place?
