Let's see. You are facing an increasing deficit over the next three years. But you have a surplus this year. What do you think any sane independent business owner would do with this year's surplus. And they are teaching our children?

Perhaps if the PISD concentrated on education instead of law enforcement, the budget might come closer to balance.
