Letter: Contracts, perks put BC in a bind at budget time

Bethlehem already has one of the highest tax rates in the area, how much more do they want? We have seen the take, take, take but where is the give? If nothing changes the biggest losers in this equation will be our children. The quality of the current educational experience will be gutted over the coming years, program by program, unless the pendulum starts swinging the other way. People on both sides of the money need to step back and understand that we are at the crossroads. The next step we take either sends us on the road to recovery and stability or heads us for a showdown with disaster. The only hope that exists is that the people with the power put the children, our future, first and restructure a system that is due for an overhaul.
