To the Editor:

With the Blue Water Board of Education (among other boards of Education in Ontario) playing hard ball with the students and parents, as well as some of its unionized employee groups in the past and, with the current school closures looming, maybe its time that  municipalities take charge.

The Blue Water Board of Education is forgetting who pays the bills.  Its you and I, the tax payer. We also pay the board's wages as well ... again, something they seem to be forgetting in their ivory tower!

 I believe it's high time that the municipalities take charge and say NO MORE!  We can all see that the education funding system is broken for rural Ontario, which we are part of.

The municipalities should be collecting the education portion of the taxes, but withhold it until the system is fixed. This would send a very strong message to the government that the rural people of Ontario are fed up.
