Yet, the contest is open to seniors from ONLY THREE of the County's 25+ high schools.
Is it just me, or does this fly in the face of what schools and libraries should be promoting? I understand that donors can put strings on money they want to give away, but do the schools and library, publicly funded based on the idea of equal access, have to be part of it? Is this discrimination? Maybe not unlawful, but certainly not fair.
Or maybe I'm just upset because my child doesn't attend one of those schools? True, there is an essay contest she can write for that is open only to children of military members -- which excludes a whole lot of people. But that contest isn't being promoted through the COUNTY -- only through military channels.
It seems to me this should be administered and promoted through the PTA's of those three schools.
But, I admit, I am often wrong, and as I mature, I'm willing to listen to other points of view.
So bring 'em on!
p.s. The designation of those three schools has nothing to do with income, race, etc. The schools are in the catchment area right around where the donors live.
