    Public schools just want mo money, mo money, mo money. It’s been that way for 20 years or more. Meanwhile, student achievement is down, and enrollment is down.
    Something doesn’t add up.

    If they hadn’t spent all their money on this without voter approval they wouldn’t be after more money now. Less students=less money needed. A simple formula that they don’t seem to understand.
