School begging another money grab for Clark County schools

Michele Wooldridge seeks to grab even more money for Twitchell Elementary by shamelessly begging for donations on their school billboard (“Begging for a budget boost,” Tuesday Review-Journal). Nevada taxpayers are already paying through the nose for the Clark County School District.

Begging for money from the public only worsens the problem.
