Proposition 204 is Trojan Horse, an everyday bait and switch scheme of special interests. Prop 204 is a ballot initiative aimed at increasing education funding while hiding a grab bag of scattershot spending to appease special interests.
Labeled the Quality Education and Jobs Initiative, Proposition 204 sends billions to the education bureaucracy. It also provides millions for program such as health services and infrastructure that should be treated as separate issues.
The Proposition 204 scheme leaves voters hopelessly confused, unable to wade through the complex spending programs while thinking they are voting for increased funding for students and teachers.
