    This is not what my tax dollars should be going to. The money would be better spent if it is divided up equally among all the schools. I’m sure if the public was told that much would go to one school that only excepts men o f a specific religion , the public would have voted NO . Again special interest benefits over the wishes of the people who have to pay for all the politicians generosity at our expense.
