$240 more per homeowner over 5 years seems like a reasonable investment in your
own kids. Most people spend way more than that on extracurricular activities.
It seems the education of the child should be as least as important as football
and dance....If you don't even want to pay extra for your OWN
kids, why would anyone else? This is why Canyons District came to be in the
first place. Jordan patrons: pay your share!
If the district hadn't gotten greedy and try to set up a 50 year indentured
bond to set up its own government they may have gotten a lower cost bond to meet
a 4 or 5 year need. Borrowing money to save money is a trap and it doesn't
work, they don't have the right to tax future costs or expenses.Schools districts are not empowered to taxation without representation and
bonding of citizens for taxation is the job of our legislators, not the school
board.The school district will have to reevaluate its current
revenue and set some priorities for the education of children from K1-K12.
Before and after those services is no concern of the department of educaiton.
The needs and concerns of business is also of no concern to education, they are
hired and paid as educators, not employment counselors or job market requests.
Education is the primary and only goal they have and distributing their budget
to meet education is all they have to do, the billions of dollars granted to
educaiton is not for welfare, healthcare, social services, or day care for
