It's good to see some independent reason rather than homer school cheering at the NC Times:
[...] the district's own facility accountability report in 2009-10 said every school was "good" and "no repairs were needed."
The measure would tack on a 14-year extension to the bond that taxpayers are currently paying through 2012.
The San Diego County Taxpayers Association has pointed out that the measure lacks some specificity in how the money will be used.
We wonder whether the bond is essential at this time.
For instance, while it might make sense to buy solar panels to shield the district from electric rate hikes while interest rates are low, we believe any savings generated by lower power bills should go to paying off the bonds, not for maintaining class sizes. And giving a grade-school child a computer to haul home is an invitation to see what happens when high-tech stuff is dropped.
Additionally, while the learning center proposed for property near the Encinitas Ranch development would be nice, it is not essential for the mission of the school district at this time.
With an economy that has many people stretched, Prop. P is the wrong proposal.
For the school board, they endorse Andrade, Gray, and Stritch. I've heard good things about Andrade from another source who has kids in the district.
