To Mary Ann Frank (“Property tax goes chiefly to education,” Reader Input, March 15): Thank you for your input. Simply this: we need to invest more of ourselves in the students. Just like the poor, additional revenue should be used towards helping them cope with their economic struggles. Any monies we obtain by means of state or corporate taxes should be used towards this goal. However, we should curtail the practice of offering more economic incentives to the educational hierarchy. In other words, stop increasing salaries and benefits for those with high income at the expense of the students and others economically depressed in this state. Furthermore, corporations and state government entities should not be exempt from their obligations to the people, and one more important thing to remember: numbers don’t mean a thing, but people do! Thank you. ALLEN CASSIDY, Auburn
