The other night I went to the Smith Center, and I came across a fact in the program that I find highly disturbing.

One of the million-dollar donors was the Clark County School District. With our education system not having enough money for teacher salaries and supplies, how and why is this donation allowed?

I understand what the Smith Center means to Las Vegas, but aren’t our children more important?

The Sun editorial of May 22 indicates that $2 million would hire 100 Teacher For America for two years. Then the $1 million would have gotten Clark County 50 more teachers for two years.
