Student dance lessons a waste of taxpayer money

I cannot believe that the Peters Township School Board is even remotely entertaining the idea of offering dance lessons for students because one or more of the board members does not think the students exhibited good taste when dancing at a recent function at the high school. When I was in high school, we had something called a “parent.” These individuals were responsible for my upbringing, and for instilling in me the moral fabric necessary to properly function outside their direct supervision. If the board doesn’t like what took place at the dance, don’t have such functions anymore. If there’s enough money in the already (supposedly) distressed budget to pay for dance lessons for kids, then the board needs to seriously revisit their priorities and repeated calls for tax increases. This is ridiculous!
