- The following Letter to the Editor was submitted by city of Northville resident Matthew Ladach
I am a very proud resident of the city of Northville, and I am equally proud to serve as a physical education teacher and football coach for Northville Public Schools. The pride I have in my residency and in my profession is a direct reflection of the pride and support that this community has always demonstrated when it comes to our children. I truly love this community, and I cannot imagine that there is a better place to raise a family than Northville.
Over the past few years I have become increasingly troubled with our state’s inability to appropriately fund our public school system. It is important to note that this lack of funding is not a reflection of our community’s support for education. In fact, our community continues to serve its children well, and I am certain that we will continue to do so in the future. However, our school district has been financially handcuffed by the State of Michigan.
Based on my experiences as a parent and an educator in this community, it has become evident that our school district is lacking the tools and the funding necessary to provide our students with the most up-to-date educational practices. Unfortunately, these hardships have come at a time when we are attempting to educate our children in a society that is constantly changing. I am concerned that our school district does not have the means necessary to continue its tradition of excellence.
It’s simple…we need the help of our great community! Please support the Northville Public Schools Technology Bond on Nov. 6. Our children need your YES vote.
