Rather than raising taxes, work to increase the priority of educational funding within existing funds. We all make personal choices what to spend our own finite resources on. The same common sense needs to be applied to our public spending.
As the son of a 25-yr San Diego teacher, I support increased funding for education for the purpose of reduced class size, higher teacher salaries, permanent inclusion of "extra" classes like music, language, etc.
However, I also support pulling funding from other existing choices. Yes, this means some other programs will be reduced or even cancelled. N one said leadership is easy. As local residents, we need to voice more clearly our willingness to make sacrifices in certain areas to benefit our highest priorities.
