To the Editor:

The Washington Republican Town Committee enthusiastically endorses the AgSTEM program.

Clearly, the Board of Education and school administrators have carefully and thoroughly researched the program.

We concur in their conclusion that it is the right path to combat declining student population in Region 12 and ensure that our students are prepared for life after high school.

We thank school administrators and the Board of Education for the time and effort they have put into researching the program and publicizing their findings so all can be fully informed when voting on this issue.

Many of us on the RTC have attended the informational meetings and found all our questions were convincingly answered by very well informed spokespeople.

The WRTC urges all eligible voters to vote Nov. 10 so that every voice will be heard.

Joan Lodsin
