Letter: Protect funding of public schools

Published:

 

Until such time as the charter schools have the same restrictions, access to, etc., by any student, it should be a resounding "no" on any ballot initiative. All tax monies must go exclusively to the public school systems. Those who prefer to send their children to private/religious schools have always been free to do so, let them continue to do so without skimming off the public's tax monies.

What is needed from the public are honest appraisals of the shortcomings of the public school systems, and, properly addressing/solving same.

Vote "no" on Initiative 1240.
