What does a new building have to do with learning? No new school.
Peggy Huntington's folly needs to be updated, but my goodness, I have enough property taxes on my property to save a pope.
First of all. the children who learn will learn because they have a proper upbringing, children who don't learn were not taught at home how to learn.
If the new age had not taken the authority away, the discipline to learn from the teachers this nation would have better students to compete with the rest of the world.
Spare the rod and spoil the child is so apparent right now.
Instead of attacking the property owners, raise the sales tax by 2 percent, then we all share the burden, or raise the "sin" tax (liquor, cigarettes, theater).
Don't make the property owners carry the burden. Let others join in the way to pay for a new school.
Charter schools would benefit, as the teachers have the authority to teach, not to be their buddy or their friend.
Retired people cannot afford any more taxes. No to the Walla Walla school bond.
