    This is an example of the kind of kid that we need at our local schools. Enrollment is down drastically and our high school is at risk! It’s a crime to send so many students to Belleville schools.
    Every day there are 5 or 6 buses behind the high school taking our best and brightest out of the county. Time to wake up, people. It’s later than you think.
