The Taylorville School Tax Referendum vote is coming April 4th and people and organizations are stepping up explaining why the public should vote yes. If the referendum is passed, the schools will be en route to having the funds the state hasn't provided to the schools, but if the vote fails, changes will be made to save costs including teacher cuts, and cutting many key extracurricular classes and programs.
Dr. Gregg Fuerstenau, Superintendent of Taylorville Schools, calls the situation a disgrace for the state of Illinois, as the state is the cause for many communities asking citizens for help to give students the quality education the state has failed to provide.
Fuerstenau said if the vote fails to pass the tax referendum, it will negatively impact the students as they won't have the chance to be as well rounded as they would, if the vote passed.
Fuerstenau appeared on the NEWSTALK WTIM Morning Show.
