While I agree with Jeff Schnelz’s letter (“Vote against the school levy to effect real change,” Jan. 13) that our state is supposed to fully fund basic education, the fact is the state does not do so.

Also our schools go beyond the basics to give the students more enrichment. We need to pay for this.
