No Say

I’m a little embarrassed that I didn’t make the same connection that this reader did when she read the recent Headline “No say, Just pay”.

“I found the front-page headline, “No say, just pay,” for a story about how the Duluth school district pays special-education costs for students enrolled elsewhere, to be very humorous, ironic and hypocritical. Wasn’t that exactly what Independent School District 709 said to every taxpayer of the district with the Red Plan?

I am one of the many who voted with my feet; I now live in Hermantown. And I am not at all sad to be done with the Duluth school district.”
