We encourage everyone to vote yes on the Coupeville Schools levy coming up Feb. 5. These funds will simply replace the existing levy and constitute no increase over prior funding.
Over the last few months, our people and our nation have been called upon to respond as we never have before. Our ability to make this response is based on our level of education, our motivation and our sense of responsiblity.
It is important that the coming generation not be punished by a lowering of education standards due to lack of money. Instead, we should support and do the very best we can do to educate our young folks so they will be prepared for whatever the future holds for them.
John & Irene Carr live in Coupeville.
