Face Lift or Good Education?

Anonymous has left a new comment on your post "Performing Arts Building Proposed For High School": 

Thursday, June 17th, 7 pm. at High School Library meeting for public regarding new addition to High School!!!! I don't have to work so I am going to find the courage to put a face among the crowd. I want to hear both sides even though I am skeptical. I hope low performance of the school is brought up. I want to know how this 6 million dollar face lift is going to promote higher learning. Reading "basic fundamental skill" needed to aid our children in ALL academics in the toilet 3 years in a row. Next year math evaluation results become public. I need to be a parent asking where the money is for actual learning in the current system. Which is more important here? I don't know what I will do if I hear deflection such as results weren't evaluated fairly. Our children are required to take responsibility for their actions and are graded by performance...NO EXCUSES!!! Alliance Middle School and High School are on this list because 75 percent of our kid's are under performing on state assessment tests. Please make this a priority! A Face Lift is great if you can afford it but a GOOD EDUCATION last's longer.
