more of the same, while the districts have stayed within the cap, it will not reverse decades of taxpayer abuse. And they are only staying the cap b/c they are force too. I also don't like seeing teachers, relatives of teachers/union workers on the school board. It seems like a huge conflict of interest even if they work in another district.
