    So, this makes it clear to me that these groups are not about making the schools run better. It is, in fact, about the money.

      Why is wanting taxes lowered all about money, but wanting them raised is not? You wrap the hike in the noble wrappings of “it’s for the children” and claim the moral high ground.

      No, it’s not a more noble position. Each is valid and has well-meaning supporters. This vilification of those who don’t support levies is getting old.
