Election letter: Richland bond: Yes

February 4, 2013 

I am a 7th grader at Enterprise Middle School and I think the bond is a good idea. Most schools here are overcrowded and there are usually about 30 students in each class. With classes this big some students might not get the attention they need. In addition, these classes are exceptionally noisy making it hard to concentrate. Opening new schools would help solve this problem.

The bond would also help with other problems. One of these problems is that the schools that are 42 years old need to be replaced. These schools are in a sad state. Their electrical systems are failing along with their heating and cooling systems.

Education is extremely important because it determines the future. This is why you should vote yes for the bond.
