While I don't always agree with Don Keelan's expressed ideas I must compliment him and agree with his column (Banner, Jan. 7) regarding the SBE and rule 2200. As one of the speakers we heard at the BBA forum stated, if you want to understand what is going on look not at who will be hurt by the proposed changes but who will benefit from them. Combined with the recent news that chairmen Morse is allegedly receiving remuneration from a national educational organization, it should be obviously clear that protecting our independent schools is not only good for Vermont education but it also saves the public taxpayer money while providing an exceptional education.
