How to do organize an opposition to a school bond issue?
The school district where I live has proposed a school re-building plan that is upwards of $11M. At the same time, the district is classified as "Academic Emergency" by the state board of ed. While our school buildings are not the latest & gratest, they are safe and adequate. Many, many parents with whom I've spoken feel the board of ed & superintendant are trying to draw focus away from the failing academics by the flashy rebuilding plan. It came out this week that the 110 parent committee the super & board put together, and worked very hard for weeks, was completely ignored and that the final plan was already decided upon (in secret) before the parents committee had even met the first time. VERY SHADY dealings are going on here!
I would like to get some opposition organized since the bond issue will be going on the ballot in November. I have no idea where to start.
