What people like the authors of last Sunday’s columns miss is that we are all educated with public money, either taxes or parental. Whether we have children presently in public schools is absolutely and totally immaterial. The great American middle class was created by public education. The GI Bill, student loans and tax-supported schools made this country what it is today. I strongly support the passage of the upcoming Weatherford ISD school bond proposal. It is the smart thing to do!
Bonds are loans and the last resort of all public enterprises. If you want to know why we must borrow to educate our young people, write a letter to our governor, state senator and representative and ask why they fail term after term to finance schools at the state level, as our state constitution demands. I bet you do not get a reply.
