> I see the case in favor of the Wrenshall School Facilities Plan resting on projects that are necessary and those that are timely; both are compelling. The case against the plan arises from the increased tax burden and uncertainty about the future.
If the April 18 renovation and new school referendum passes, district taxpayers would see their taxes go up hundreds of dollars. How the school is going about and promoting the referendum to the community is kind of like the elementary classroom teacher and student story:
Nothing in this plan addresses the current problem, which is classroom size. Time for the Wrenshall School district to cap classrooms to under 20 children and forget this foolish expensive expansion based on further growth from the student exodus from non-paying districts that may or may not continue.
But, if you don't have the proper tools to teach, it gets that much harder. All the teachers in Wrenshall are amazing at what they do. Those are the people teaching the future engineers, scientists, etc. ... they deserve to have better workplaces and tools to teach all the students.
Students are taught in school that they are in charge of their learning. As adults, we are under obligation to keep ourselves informed and the fault does not lie with the school district. In the age of information, ignorance is a choice. For those of you who have a disconnect, our school is an asset to this community and to all students who attend. This is why as an informed citizen I am Voting YES on April 18.

To the Editor: On March 7, eighth-graders from the Cloquet Middle School were given the opportunity to travel to St. Paul's Park Square Theatre to view Goodrich and Hackett's production of "The Diary of Anne Frank."
