League of Women Voters backs school levy

The League of Women Voters Bowling Green is endorsing the Bowling Green City Schools Bond Issue and urge voters to vote FOR the issue.

The League of Women Voters thoroughly studies issues to better understand our community and its resources. Based on what we have learned, we reach a consensus, establish a written position and take action in support of that position. Education is one of our oldest and strongest positions. This position was re-studied in 2013 and re-adopted in 2016. The League supports “sufficient funding for and accountability of programs and facilities at all levels.”

The proposed levy will not only affect the quality of education for current students, but the character of our community. Educational requirements continue to change, and we are confident that the BG City Schools have carefully studied a variety of options to determine the most cost-effective facilities best suited to meet those requirements for decades to come. Good schools make strong communities.
