As current and former school board members and real estate property owners, we write to encourage New Orleans voters to vote yes to renew the millages on Oct. 14 to fund the Orleans Parish School System. The system has made significant strides in creating a stable, financially sound institution that provides our children with opportunities. These millage renewals will allow us to continue to pay salaries to teachers, to provide textbooks to students and to help prevent our most vulnerable students from dropping out. There is no investment more important than our children, and this millage renewal will allow us to continue to provide them with a world-class education. Nelson Mandela said, "Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world." Please vote yes to help our students have the opportunity to change the world.
