Schools big issue in primary elections

May 3, 2011

Public school referendums are in the spotlight during Tuesday’s central Indiana primary elections. Voters in Franklin Township, Perry Township and Avon will be asked to vote on a referendum asking for more property tax revenue to support local schools. Franklin Township’s superintendent said that, if the referendum fails, class sizes will increase, programs and services will be cut and jobs could be eliminated. Polls are open until 6 p.m.
