The new school.

I was sitting in a open-house/dedication ceremony for a new school recently. This new school replaced a school that had been built in 1929. It looked just like a WWII bunker.

The speaker said, “A round of applause for so-and-so for the architectural design.”
CLAP! CLAP! CLAP!

“A round of applause for so-and-so who led the construction effort.”
CLAP! CLAP! CLAP!

“A round of applause for the staff of the school.”
CLAP! CLAP! CLAP!

“A round of applause for so-and-so who arranged the financing.”
CLAP! CLAP! CL …

WHAT?!!!!

Now the last school was built 76 years ago!!!! And we had to FINANCE the new school?!! We were using TAX PAYER money to pay interest on a note for a new school when the last school was built 76 years ago!!!

This should not be! At what point in time did we figure out that we might have to replace the school someday?

Do you know that if the school had invested $3.69 per week into an investment, there would have been enough TO PAY CASH for the new building?

Instead, the school and the taxpayers are burdened with the debt.

It’s time to start saving for the replacement of this school!
