Now that Tooele County voters have voted down the school bond, what do we do now? Certainly those of you who voted against the bond have an alternative idea to affect the school age children from Lake Point to Vernon, Dugway and Wendover. Not to mention in the main cities of Tooele, Stansbury and Grantsville.
Yes, there is a lot of apartment/home building going on all over Tooele County. Where do we put these children moving here? The answer to the question is into already overcrowded classrooms and portables. This decision affects the long term Tooele families as well. What do we do with the children already in Tooele?
You may say, “I don’t care what happens to people moving into Tooele, nor for long time residents. I don’t want my taxes to go up!” So, my question is: “What does that say about you?” It says that you don’t value education nor care about the future of society. Maybe you’ve already raised your children. But a society is concerned about the future. These children are going to grow up and become the leaders of tomorrow. This is where you are affected as well. These children will make decisions for our society and government.
Another question is: “How does Tooele look to the rest of Utah? Think it looks like we have our heads in the sand.
