Parents in the Santa Ynez Valley north of Santa Barbara, California are objecting to a ballot initiative to raise taxes to fund a school board bond that would demolish 19 modular classrooms purchased between 1996 and 2008. The parents have asked for a town hall meeting to discuss the issue, but the school officials allegedly have refused. According to the letter from the parents published in SYVNews, the group says the modular buildings are still in good shape, meet current building codes, plus the school recently spent thousands of dollars to repaint them. MHProNews has learned the parents are asking for more transparency in the education budget and better use of available monies instead of increasing taxes.
