Two years ago I was in a Columbia County School Board meeting and heard the school board informed that if they pass the Education Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax, the school system would be out of debt in two years.
It has been two years, and now I understand teachers will be laid off, class sizes will increase and the superintendent who said that got a raise. Something does not sound right to me and I want to know what.
