Board’s decision on All Day K appalling

I am appalled by the recent decision by our school board. We had an initiative that was voted down by the people and our school board determines that they will ignore our vote and still initiate full-day kindergarten classes. I would like the board to explain why they even asked us to vote on the levy. If they had it as a top priority on their agenda and they were going to move forward with it, why did we vote? Not only did you lose my confidence, you also lost any leverage to ask me for more of my tax dollars. I thought you were elected to represent the people. The people spoke; you are not representing us. — Joel Nelson, Ramsey
