Wednesday, March 21, 2007 | I appreciate the perspective you presented in your article on March 19, but I think a bigger story is the projected change in revenue these schools are realizing over the previous school year (’05-’06). They may lament the loss of 2 percent, but that pales compared to the 10 percent increase they’ll get even using the lower Feb. 15 values. Moreover, two of these districts saw a decrease in enrollment (average daily attendance).

When was the last time you got a 10 percent raise? And would you whine to the media that it should have been more?
