"It's a hard issue. In the end, the children always suffer. I'm sureeven they (teachers) are divided on this. You don't go into teachingfor he money, because there's no money there. But you have to retain good teachers. There's three places the county should spend money: teachers, police protection and fire protection. I don't care what itcosts. I don't mind paying the taxes, even though my kids go to private school."
