Found money cuts school fees

August 6, 2013 

Back in May I wrote a letter to the editor about being shocked by the doubling of school fees in O'Fallon District 90. In the comments section some parents called me ignorant and said I should be ashamed at being shocked. These same parents who were calling me names also claimed to be involved in the classrooms. I now wonder what those same parents are thinking now that the district has decided that they have "found" money and have taken the school fees back to last year's prices? Even though I voted for the tax levy I am beginning to think that the people who voted "no" might have been on to something.
