I'll be perfectly honest, though: Even though I think it's stupid, and most of the people I've talked to think it's stupid . . . there's no telling if it'll go through or not. One of the commercials advocating the split is trying to say that there isn't enough money being distributed to schools, but that isn't a problem of just whoever's in office- a lot of local officials just think they can pocket the cash that's supposed to go to the school system, which leads to nonsense like my local school district going through four different primary administrators during my childhood, and my having to attend every one of those protests. The money going to schools from the state government has increased, even in the more rundown urban districts, but the actual amounts reaching the schools are decreasing due to sheer greed among the people distributing said cash. The split won't do anything to fix that, and will only create more expensive bureaucracy that will take more money away from things like the emergency services we just reappropriated money towards.
I'm not going to say that people will be smart enough to vote against something that won't accomplish anything positive- I've been disappointed by human stupidity enough times- but I hope that this gets shot down fast.
