I think, the students of Mukwonago High School should have a say in how the student government spends our money, or even how the school spends it's money. The student government this past year decided to build on an atrium to the back of the school. There is no purpose to this atrium, and no one even knows what it's for. I've talked to a lot of people who think it's totally stupid and completely useless. Then our school buys brand new soda machines. We don't need new ones, just get the old ones fixed. Plus, some of the teachers are getting brand new computers when their old ones work perfectly fine, even if they aren't totally up to date, they still work the same way. Even after they spend all this money, they complain that our school has no money, so they can't fund certain things. They even tried to take music out of school so they could save on money. They also don't send things home in the mail any more, they make you take receipts and things so they can save 34 cents on postage. So they spend all their money on new, useless things, just so they can complain about not having any money. We never take school trips anywhere unless we pay for basically the whole thing ourselves. But what really angers me, is that they raised lunch prices 75 cents. So instead of $1.90 per day, it's now $2.65. It's total crap. I know a lot of students want cameras in the parking lot but this is just rediculous. Besides, even if they did see someone breaking into cars or keying cars, they wouldn't really do anything about it. Cameras won't prevent people from vanalizing the cars of others. Plus, cameras aren't going to fix any of the damage done, the school won't pay for damage. They make you pay 90 dollars a semester to park there but they won't reimburse you for damages. The money we pay for parking only goes to crap we don't need. Why don't they take some of the parking money and put it towards lunches so we can still pay $1.90? No, they take that money and give it to the teachers because they complain that they don't make enough money. If they want more money, then don't ask for new computers okay. Don't ask for new things, and you just make get a raise in the next few years. If you have a problem with your car being broken into, ride the bus. If your in swimming, take the car pool. If you have a problem with that, walk, deal with it. God, people don't even realize that money doesn't grow on trees and if we want special things, we are going to have to pay. No, I don't want any goverment funding, because it won't help. Besides, I don't want new soda machines, new computers, cameras in the parking lot, or an atrium. It's all just a waste of our parents money. And I, for one, am sick of it.
