Look at private schools; why are they now able to receive funding from state coffers, yet they can pick their students? How does giving tax credit to people who make more than $100,000 a year help the poor and the special needs children? How many special education students are being serviced in private schools? How many Peytons and Peles were picked by private schools? Not only do private schools get state funding and get to choose their students, they don’t even have to meet the same requirements public schools must meet.
Public schools are still the “choice” most families make. If you and your children have invested in a school corporation to make it your community, fight this. Public schools are only asking for a level-playing field, some fair officials, and some good sportsmanship in the education arena — not sour grapes.

Home values fall, taxes stay the same
Thanks, Mike Baden. Your letter tells more like it is.
I have lived in Prairie Township since 1966. I can’t imagine 94 wind turbines in this small area.
Other people in Tipton County need to realize they will be next. These turbines will benefit only the farmers.
What hasn’t been said is no one in this area will get any electricity from these wind turbines. It goes elsewhere! Our roadways will be bad. There won’t be any good roads while they are working to build the giants.
There are a lot of negatives the wind companies are not telling the public. Meanwhile, our property values go down and our taxes stay the same.
