Letter | Vote green, reject school bond
April 4, 2012 · 9:37 AM
One of the key reasons to vote “Reject” in the school bond election is the sheer wastefulness of resources it proposes. The bond proposal is to demolish four of our schools that we remodeled in the mid-1990s. Our schools are resources that have been built from natural resources, and we should exercise the same environmental and conservationist ethic with major resources like our school buildings as we try to do with aluminum, glass, paper and the forests and mineral deposits that are the sources of those resources. Wastefulness will not enrich the Island and will not teach our children well. Vote green — reject the school bond.
