It is a good idea to consider alternative uses of the money extracted from taxpayers. For example, many on the left will be able to tell you how many people we could have insured had we not spent the money in Iraq. But these same folks will seldom apply this kind of thinking to Unified's financial woes. What did Unified spend the money on that could have been used to maintain their buildings? Why does Unified have poorly maintained buildings while private schools are able to maintain their buildings with much less money?
If we start to ask these kind of questions, we will realize that Unified is a poor steward of our collective contributions, and that maybe it would be unwise to provide more money for them to squander. I mean really, we could be spending that money on a new rain garden or a public windmill.
