Lindberg: For educating Vermonters, it’s time to return to what works

The ruling elite of all parties in Vermont have doubled down on this approach with the coercive and tyrannical Act 46. The political promises of reduced costs, lower taxes, equality of education and increased opportunities were false. The exact opposite result is happening. The next phase of Act 46 will be Gov. Scott’s school closing commission. This for me is unacceptable.

Lindberg: Act 60/68 needs to be repealed

Vermont’s education funding law Act 60/68 needs to be revisited and repealed.
