Great blog from Jo Egelhoff of FoxPolitics.net.
She points out that the Kenosha school district is going to spend $10,000 in their campaign to persuade voters to approve a $52-million dollar referendum next month.
This is classic.
One school official says it’s not so much about “convincing” as it is about “educating.”
Don’t you just love that condescending, arrogant tone coming from someone who thinks they’re just so much smarter than the rest of us.
It’s really not that difficult.
I am going to vote NO on a huge tax increase when student achievement is poor to average, each and every time.
I don’t need “educating.”
When my tax dollar isn’t getting the bang for the buck, why should I blithely concede and agree to spend even more of my hard-earned money.
In her blog, Egelhoff writes about the Kenosha campaign:
“So, that’s $10,000 of your taxes going to pay for efforts to spend more of your taxes. Now, if you’re a local community group that believes the referendum should not pass – for one reason or the other – where do you suppose your $10,000 is for campaigning against the referendum?”
