12. I got fooled the first time....

but not the second time. I went Green this time around and did not regret my vote.

I work in public education so I am very aware of the discrepancies. In fact, I am so disgusted that I have decided to retire this year even though I could work longer.

I have always been one to put money at the front of a problem than behind-it really is cheaper that way. My daughter got the best public education because I was one to work with her teachers, made sure she was ready, and knew how to pull strings when I needed. The public schools were better than the best private schools here. She has graduated and though she had to take out loans, she may actually be able to pay them off soon. I was the first in my family to go to college and I learned much. I wanted my daughter to go further and she has. Watch what the 1% do, not what they say.
