To the editor

Kudos to the governor for her veto against corporate tax breaks for donations to private schools.

What our state and nation need more than ever is a commitment to quality public education. In its relentless pursuit to privatize absolutely everything, this new, far-more-right-wing Republican Party really wants to abolish public education entirely.

Good public schools are crucial to the nation's future. There are some areas that should be dedicated to the "commonwealth," and education is certainly one of them.
