Ruben Medrano

Last year I tried to compose a list (with the assistance from various tax watch groups) of any and all forms of taxations, fees, charges, and however else the government synonymies "our money" and discovered that after the list went 200+ strong, I became too depressed and lost sight as to why I even tried to compose such a list.
I have lived in San Antonio 9 years and though I am Texas born, I will exit from here just as soon as I can. It seems that most of the city is blind and deaf. I will probably run into many same-like Texas cities however I would like to find one where I am not automatically grouped by race into political ploys just because of it. I did not vote for this mayor just as I did not vote for our president. If they are going to lead by the differences in "shade", make it a fair fight and just say so. The programs and ideas they come up with seem to want to please their wives and their mothers.

I will not vote for this tax. The city receives enough of my money! Some 4-year-olds are simply not ready for school. Moreover, the program has restrictions on who gets to participate. If the mayor really wanted this program for children, he could just as easily have promoted a pilot program in one school district, presented the results at some point down the line, and then proposed it for the whole city. The problem is, this type of program hasn't been shown to be effective elsewhere. Much like our president, Castro has the media on his side. The media on so many levels has lost its professionalism. I fear the city will approve the tax, but hope others feel as I do and will vote it down.

Thanks to Ruben and Luis for their posts, I look forward to comments from some Moms! After teaching on the South Side of San Antonio since 2003, I agree with Ruben, it is not accurate to categorize people by ethnicity or location!

I am one of the moms that doesn't agree with a sales tax to have a bunch of 4 year olds go to "school" when everyone is not included. These children already recieve benefits that my children have not been able to take advantage of. I don't think it is fair to say lets all pay for what a parent should be doing at home. We are Hispanic and I do get to stay home and take care of our kids and although it is a struggle we make it work. My boys are in 3rd and 6th and are A students with no one to thank but dad and mom and their grade level teachers. Here is the clincher, they had to start a year later since their birthdays are in December and Septmember. I often wonder if they would have done better had they gone to a pre-K program but we did not qualify here in Judson since we made too much money and they didn't speak Spanish. When I come back to reality I think it worked out for the best since they will hoopefully go to school from K-12 and keep going to complete college. Why give them an extra few years? I think too many parents make it all the responsibility of the teacher and forget that they are their childrens first teacher and the child will not learn if not taught.

I will never vote for this tax or any tax increase. We should reduce sales tax and most other taxes because our government officials are wasteful! They are acting like spoiled children. How come our taxes are so high and our school systems are so terrible? The system continuously fails!
I graduated high school 6 years ago and it was a joke. I partied hard, slept in classes and still graduated with an overall average of 91% (high school still ranks theirs on 100% scale). We exemplify minimum standards instead of true talent. I don't need the government to take care of my daughter and I take that as an insult to my parenting skills.
My parents actively taught me math, reading, finance and encouraged my natural talent. I will give my daughter those same lessons of life. I believe more parents should take an active role in their children's home education.
