School district’s plea for tax hike should be ignored
Thank you, Gabrielle Porter, for an objective article regarding the Jeffco Schools budget. The numbers don’t lie when we see that the spending by Jeffco schools has increased steadily and by a net of 1.4 percent AFTER inflation and AFTER the 4.6 percent decrease last year since 2004. The numbers also reveal that enrollment is down by 2,000 students and, contrary to a spokesman’s claim, special-needs numbers are down, not up.
