Sports not more important than education

PREV
NEXT

I am wondering if other schools besides General Brown let their students vote on the school budgets. Do other schools also tell everyone that they will cancel all sports if their budgets aren’t passed?

Sports are important, but I think a good education is more important. I can’t imagine students saying they will quit school if sports are eliminated or cut back. I think the Catholic schools give a much better education to their students.

I wonder what General Brown will do when people, especially seniors, can’t pay these higher school taxes. Maybe the school will have to concentrate more on better education and less on sports. I see why more parents are homeschooling their children, and I also see why more people are moving out of the General Brown Central School District.
