The thing I've notices about schools is that they are ruthless trend followers. If one school district tries something trendy, like new math or whole language, sooner or later they all do it.
Asking voters to bust the tax caps and pay more for schools is the latest trend, and Hebron is the latest district to ask.
Even the amount they ask for is about the same. Crown Point got 21 cents per $100 assessed, is it a coincidence that Munster wants 21 cents and Hebron wants 23 cents?
