Just found this on the internet:
The City of Boston is raising property tax rates by the maximum of two and half percent for the coming year. The current school budget is actually a decrease from last year. What will this increase in revenue be spent on?
I fear that it will be spent to add more extraneous jobs to the City of Boston payroll while students and schools go without.
Furthermore, how much extra does the City of Boston spend above the minimum guideline set by the Commonwealth? I bet you that Newton spends more of their own money to educate their children than we do.
