Voters Decide: $1.2 Billion for Public Schools

Miami-Dade County Public Schools scored a major victory on Tuesday, November 6th when voters approved a $1.2 billion bond to help repair ailing schools.  This bond will determine the legacy of Superintendent Alberto Carvalho as he strives to improve the condition of the county’s education system.  Aside from allocating funds to repair old buildings, some which have leaky roofs and are building mold, it is the intention of Superintendent Carvalho to use the bond to add technology to schools.  Although it is still too early to know what kind of impact this will have on G. Holmes Braddock Senior High, it is encouraging to know that tax payers are supporting their public schools.
