Poland's mixed feelings over memorial to rescuers of Jews

Everyone pays, everyone benefits

It just seems like bad math. The argument I’ve heard the most against a new Waynesboro High has been that “my kids are all grown, so why should I pay for a school I won’t use? Tax the parents whose kids will be attending.” The kids, now in middle school, who would use a renovated or rebuilt Waynesboro High, didn’t put it in this condition. Thousands of students from 1937 to current day contributed to this, through natural wear and tear. The same goes for their parents, every time they picked up a student at school, attended a sporting event or sat through a conference with a teacher. We are all to blame for its current state and that’s why, no matter what the decision, we all need to pay.
