Okay, so the gays totally suck and can't get married. Meanwhile, schools are taking out ads on tests so they can afford to print them. Good to know our government has its priorities straight.

This is disturbing on more than one level. Schools should not be run like businesses. I blame the "tax & spend" slogan for this. As a society we seem to have collectively forgotten that taxes are not in fact for punishing people for no reason, but that taxes actually serve to fund very real and essential public services. Instead we have immature arguments whereby any amount of taxes seem unnecessary and burdensome. This is not a case where the teachers and students should simply be happy. This is a case where the community really needs to take a long hard look at the budget and work things out competently. The parents should be making a big deal out of it.

The article says there's been no complaints so far. Good. Don't come crying to me when your children have golden arches on their school uniforms so they can "pay" for their education by making fries after school.
