Voters OK school bond

The $30 million bond issue for the Oxford School District passed by receiving 68 percent of the vote Tuesday. The referendum needed 60 percent for passage. The bonds will be used to build a new high school and improve the other schools in the district to handle the growing student population. (October 26, 2010, Page 1, 2)

      This sucks! I deeply regret that this has happened. Taxes go up and I get nothing in return! I have no children in this school system and when I did, it did little for them!

      An educated community benefits every citizen. There are tens, if not hundreds of thousands of residents in this great state who would give their eye teeth to have our exemplary education system. Everyone who lives in the Oxford city schools area should consider themselves lucky, kids or no. If you don’t believe it, go live in the Delta for a few weeks. Poverty–a direct result of the worst, most underfunded education system in America–is endemic there. Congratulations, Oxford, for making the right choice. My daughter thanks you too.
