Which is worse, a belly up school or a new tax to prevent it?
An impossible catch 22 or is it people don’t care as much as they say about schools? I can’t remember how many years this trend has gone on I almost hardly play attention anymore. Many cities and communities are hurting for cash to keep existing schools open or to build new schools. The only way to do it is to put some type of tax measure to a vote, but time and time again it gets shot down even when many of those shooting down the bill or ordinance etc have school-aged kids. If say a 3% parcel tax etc is going to allow their child to have gym or play a certain sport with out a participation fee, or to keep the doors to their child’s school open why fret the tax? Isn’t it worse to let your child’s school go belly up than to pay a special tax aimed to prevent it?
