Should Kansas expand gambling to create revenue for public schools?
Asked at Checkers, 2300 La., and on Massachusetts Street on June 20, 2005
“Yes, because the state needs money for public schools. Gambling is a huge tourist attraction and will bring in outside money.”
“I don’t think that it would make a difference. I think they would find some other place to spend the money because education doesn’t really seem to be a priority here.”
“Yes, anything for education, but not if there are other motives behind it.”
“No. It’s just not a sustainable way to raise money for schools, and you don’t want to teach children that the way to pay for their education is through vice.”
