Speakers on campus

I've been thinking about this for a long time and I've come to the conclusion that the Policy Committee needs to pass a policy that only allows government representatives a certain distance within the school grounds based on the educational funding gap that level of government represents.

For example, the federal government passes plenty of mandates that cost plenty of money and they send pennies on the dollar to the schools. My thought is that anyone, including military recruiters, be required to only visit the very corner of the school parking lot at the nearest to speak their piece. They can use a bullhorn if they like but that's all their pennies buy them.

If they bring baked goods, sell them and donate the proceeds, we'll let them park in a visitors spot.

We have no such problem with the State, they've been calling it in for years, they refuse to vote on legislation that would fund special education, and so on. We'll give them a special number to call of a cell phone that has no battery because the funding isn't there.

It also keeps the air in the school from getting stale quick. Let's keep it in mind shall we?
