What a disgrace that local schools are forced to hold fundraisers to save teachers’ jobs (Oct. 12 Review-Journal). Will we soon see teachers standing on street corners with cardboard signs pleading for contributions to avoid a $60 million shortfall?
In the meantime, local taxpayers are being saddled with a $750 million debt to pay for the new Raiders stadium. Big stadiums are big-time losers. Once completed, they have a small support staff with fewer employees than your local Walmart. The only ones making a profit will be the team owners.
The corrupt local officials who pushed for and approved wasting our tax dollars on this fiasco while ignoring our schools should be in jail.
