These pay raises for Lake Central School Corp. administrators come at a significant cost. We have overcrowded classrooms, teaching positions have been eliminated, and all noncertified staff have been reduced to the bare minimum. Isn't it better to operate in the black, hold some money in reserve, so when the next catastrophe hits, we have something to fall back on?

Most Americans are learning to live on less income. Why can't Lake Central's administrators do the same?

Maybe it is time for an overall change in the administrators running the corporation, and maybe we should be saying adios to George Baronowski, Howard Marshall and John Devries. They have been on the School Board too long.

Lake Central taxpayers, need to start taking an active role in how the corporation spends money coming in the school system. Is it being used to the best advantage of our students?
