Mounds View School Board Election

Mounds View School District 621 (Mn) elections are tomorrow. Three seats are up for election.

The incumbents:
  • Greg Madsen
  • Marre Jo Sager
  • Jon Tynjala 
The challengers:
  • Jack Brunell
  • Timothy Husnik 
For more info, check out HD50B.com. Here's a teaser. Marre Jo Sager is opposed to any form of vouchers, saying she wants the district to be so good, all parents wish to send their students to MV public schools. Translation, she supports the government monopoly. Further, she knows that many parents currently do not want to send their kids to government schools, but do so mostly because the schools already took their money.

Sager seems to fear that empowering parents with the choice of where to spend their child's "state issued tuition" will hurt government school enrollment. Is that a bad thing? As long as the kid gets an education and you aren't dependent on the MEA or it's union dues, does it really matter where the kid gets the education?
