Give Elkhart students the resources they need

After teaching math in Elkhart for 33 years. and coaching for 51 (and counting!) I know how hard our educators work. However, they are burdened by restrictions placed by the state legislature.

I agree with the letters from Tom Kurth ("Former coach urges Elkhart to vote yes May 6") and Scott Sindle ("Elkhart Memorial grad supports May 6 referenda") regarding the upcoming referendum vote for Elkhart Community Schools.

Years ago our school system prepared me well for college. Years later, my children received equal benefit from the same system.

Though the administration and school board never cease striving to give our children the best, resources are exceedingly limited. That's why I urge eligible voters to say yes to both of the May 6 referendums. Let's work together to give our young scholars the resources they need now and in the future.
