Poor maintenance wastes money

SHARE: facebook Twitter icon Linkedin icon Google+ icon Email icon |  PRINTER-FRIENDLY

I must agree with Mike Murdock's May 29 letter regarding lack of grounds maintenance in the Edmonds School District. For years as a teacher I cajoled parents and students to help clean the school entry and other areas in spring and fall. In the summer a few college students were hired to try to do the impossible: make the school exteriors appealing, welcoming and a source of pride.
With Washington ranked 47th in the nation in class size and myriad other funding problems the Legislature has not satisfactorily addressed, I don't know the answer to this. But I do think it is money wasted when we don't keep up what we have.
