Why of course the decision makers care about education! That's why we have the NC Education Lottery, so that we NEVER have to worry about funding education again!
Strange, though, I've still seen bond referendums for education even after the lottery was in place. And even after watching a commercial bragging about all the money that the NC Education Lottery has raised.
Could it be that those funds are not being used for education?? Is that why our elected decision makers can still feel good about asking for more money 'for the children'?
Now you begin to see... These people will use whatever plea they can come up with to ask for more money. Most of the time, little or none of that money goes toward the cause they solicited it for.
If ever a politician asks you to vote for a bill or referendum that 'creates jobs' or 'is for the children', you need to take a very hard look at it. You might be surprised how many times you will decide that the best bet is to vote against it.
