The Fed thinks the economy is transitioning to a self sustaining recovery, so they are signalling reducing stimulus which resulted in the recent interest rate jump.

A 2% cost of living increase is hardly a "raise". Please. Our schools and teachers have been doing without basic necessities. Education should be far more important to us than that. Libertarian/capitalistic viewpoints do nothing for the common good of our children's/our country's future.

It pains me that schools in surrounding cities seem to have so much more support from the public at large.

There hasn't been a Whisman School District in 10 years. If your readers don't recognize MVWSD, then maybe you should just use "MV elementary school district" or "MV K-8 district."
