Letter: Rivendell Forum This Saturday

To the Editor:

On Saturday, Feb. 16, I will moderate a community discussion about education at 10:30 a.m. at the Emergency Services Building on Lake Morey Road in Fairlee. The discussion is sponsored by the Taxpayers of Rivendell School District.

I understand that voters have strong opinions pro and con about school consolidation. While Campaign for Vermont conceptually supports school district consolidation as a way to channel more taxpayer dollars directly to student education, neither I nor Campaign for Vermont have developed an opinion on this issue regarding the Rivendell Interstate School District. Rather, we strongly encourage communities across Vermont to talk and work together to provide the best education possible for their students.

I will do what I can to help make that happen this Saturday in Fairlee.
