Since when does being below the state average become "very good news"? That's great that MN continues to lead the nation, but why are Marshall graduates being compared to the national number? Shouldn't they be compared to MN graduates?

The rest of the article has a different tone than what was being presented prior to voting. I wonder how this would have read had the referendum passed? Cuts were mentioned several times in this article. They're coming...

It's a bit irritating to hear school officials, as well as other government entities complain that "state funding has not kept pace with inflation".

As a parent with kid(s) in Marshall public schools, I am overall NOT satisfied. How much staff do we need? A particular teacher does not even participate in parent/teacher meetings. I honestly feel the public education system in Minnesota needs a major overhaul, especially Marshall. We should be above average for the state.

Well, maybe leadership will really need to budget now. I think they did not work very hard on the referendum because they thought it was a slam dunk. The message was sent. Now Willert and Lamprecht will really need to work and learn how to budget. Get ready for the slashing of teachers or principals like they did a few years ago. But then they can bring it back a couple year later as a new idea so they are saving the day and improving programs. So much for stability for our kids. This district is a joke.
