The early morning after. After the loss of the Oracle Elementary School District 2 override election. What is a person to think?
It would be smart to believe in educating our children. The tax is already in place – it’s not a new tax: $28.00 a year for a $100,000 home. Truthfully, it’s almost $29.00. A small price to pay to have teachers and equipment to help our children. Children are our future and if people can’t understand that, I don’t get it.
Arizona is 47th in the nation for the amount of money it spends on educating each child. This is no surprise. And I called the AZ Dept of Education to verify this is true. How sad. How tragic. How disgusting.
How embarrassing? But do the folks in AZ really care? Obviously not.
I hope the folks who didn’t vote for the override come to their senses some day. But it just makes those of us who did vote yes stronger – we will try even harder to make our District the best, and our children the best. It won’t stop us in doing what is right and best for our young ones.
