LETTER: If we want better schools, we all must pay more

After reading many stories about the Clark County School District eliminating deans in order to close a budget hole, I offer a few facts and a suggestion.

If you have been in your home since 2007, you are paying about 15 percent less in property taxes today than you did in 2007. Maybe we could pay a bit more and eliminate this deficit. In addition, our major employers reap the benefits of a well-educated workforce. Maybe our gaming companies and other large employers can step up to the plate to show their support for our future (well-educated students) and erase this deficit.

We all want the best but, as usual, we do not want to pay for it.
