Rick Short is correct, “School levies are important for students and learning.” (‘School levies important for students and learning’ by Rick Short, Letter in the February 2014 edition of the Granite Falls Press)
Thanks to the voters in Granite Falls for passing both levies. In the rest of the world, 57 million children are not so lucky, they have no chance to get an education.
Currently the Education for All Act in the U.S. House could change that. It is stuck in committee at the moment, but a phone call or email to your representatives could change that. It would give all children the chance to be students.
