Why not loan/give the stimulus money to school districts that have shown a need for new schools. The Banks School District recently narrowly defeated a bond measure to build new Junior and Senior High schools. The need is there. The ground work is started.
The patrons would probably be willing to pay this money back. Why not loan it the money at zero % interest. Maybe a matching fund program. The fedral government would at least get something in return.
This would quickly create jobs. It could use local and national goods and materials. It would thus stimulate the economy. It would be something our children and grandchildren could use. This only seems fair since they are stock holders in this situation. It would create community pride.
I'm sure we are not the only district in the state that could take advantage of such a program.
This seems like a win win deal in my mind.
