The Courier and Press had an online discussion on EVSC funding in July that I just came across today. Check it out here (I link to the google cache because the Courier and Press doesn't archive stuff after a month or two). An excerpt:

Do you agree with Mayor Russ Lloyd's decision to not provide city help for the Evansville-Vanderburgh School Corp.'s extracurricular activities fund?

Choice 1
"Let the EVSC solve the problems they created ! !"

Choice 3
"why should he care, his son goes to a private catholic school, memorial."

Choice 2
"Heck no."

Choice 2
"New Mayor would be the key to alot of fixs!!"

"Heck no"--I like that answer.

Of course, my view toward the EVSC is mixed--students should have as many opportunities as they need in school. At the same time, the EVSC is very wasteful. The only way to get out of this financial muck is to elected officials to the School Board who are interested in honest reform. That, of course, requires that compentent candidates run for office--so if you want to reform the EVSC, look into running for the School Board!
