Middle class school systems will never be top notch. Looking through these posts is comical. Where do you people think you live, Winchester? Lexington? Belmont? You live in MELROSE. Most of you are just upset because you moved here and overspent by 100 K on a two bed one bath. We don’t have the tax base or the revenue to ever thrive in the education system. Why do you think many Melrose residents send their kids to parochial or private schools. I’m not saying don’t make the effort to make the system better but realize that we are capped and be realistic. There are many other parts of our city budget that need money to, not every cent can go to the schools.
DPW needs money to make much-needed infrastructure changes. All three fire departments look like they are about to cave in and collapse. The police department is so undermanned it’s borderline dangerous. These are just three quick thoughts that come to mind when I hear people trying to over extend what we really are here in this city when it comes to education. Money needs to go elsewhere.
MELROSE — Next week is a big one for the city’s educators, students, parents and other caregivers as the 2020-21 academic year begins amid the on-going coronavirus pandemic.

Their communications plan isn't designed to communicate actual truths. They only care about not letting the community see how they fail miserably at so many things. It usually is some screw-up they totally could have prevented and they don't want anyone to know. The school system and the city of Melrose.
