Letter - School funding? Not for this board

Posted

Regarding Douglas County School District’s upcoming bond issue:

I have always voted for school bond issues wherever I’ve lived — even if I had no children in the district. That reflects how strongly I believe in the value of public education. But, I have no intention of supporting the bond issue of the Douglas County School District this time around.

The actions of the school board in recent years have been appalling and embarrassing. More time has been spent on politicking and infighting than on discussions of education.

I will not support a board that has spent excessively on legal fees, shown their support for using public funds for private education, watered down what should be taught about our nation’s history — and has allowed board meetings to become the laughingstock of the metro area.

Now they’re finally ready to discuss education? Now they want my tax money? They haven’t earned it.
