My colleague and friend has written an outstanding editorial piece for the Dallas Morning News, and I encourage everyone to check it out and weigh in.
A key point:
"It is all about priorities, and education just doesn’t seem to be that vital. The government will bail out the private-sector banks and huge corporations in the best interest of the economy and its citizens. Who will step in and help out our children, teachers and schools? Taxpayers will fund a $1.2 billion stadium to have the Cowboys in their back yard. But when it comes time to pay property taxes, many complain because they don’t even have a child in the school system."
Well done, Michael.
