Just read the Sunday Globe story about the Override.  Amazing they say 25 students in many classes.  Where oh where are all those 30 and over classes /  You see, the proponents for the override wee not able to dazzle with B.S. everyone, and the other media didn't just accept rehashed PR pieces and suggets / vouch  for the accuracy.  NO MEANS NO-  Just VOTE NO on June 3rd !

Yes, I am the Erin who corrected your misreading of the Globe article and I have never had any exchange with you before. And I probably should have kept to that policy. But yes, there are many classes with 28-30 students, above the recommended guidelines of 25, this year. All the 2nd grade classes at my daughter's school are 28-30 kids because they went from 4 2nd grade teachers to 3 this year.

Seems you are two peas in the same political pod. This doesn't say much for your character either ! Guess the gamesmanship continues. Your carefully couched words of class size are still vague and to my opinion evasive. Let me teach you: when you use the words, many, some and few your motives must be judged as evasive, especially when you present them as relevant facts. Of this- both of you are guilty. Seems the two Erins here will claim innocence because of this latest deception ! Just Vote NO today !

Erin- (take you pick) - just remember numbers discussed in the Globe article were projections. Oh did I say the before ? Yes, I think I did ! When your wrong; your wrong ! Shrewsbury would be better served with a more stand-up approach instead of all the subterfuge and propaganda issued by the Empire builders at the school department. They take great joy dazzling you with their selling of gloom and doom, and half-truths. Don't forget the "guidelines" of 25 students. What is this; just another projection which proves what ? ? You want to run with this too ? Just Vote NO against the 2 1/2 override today !

I'm not sure how much clearer I can be with my real-world example. Right now, right here, there are three 2nd grade classes at my daughter's school with between 28 and 30 students, because they cut one of the 2nd grade teachers. Last year there were 4 teachers in that grade. I don't know the exact number of students in every class because my daughter is not in every class.
