Doraville TAD

SPLOST and TAD Go Hand-in-Hand

Dr. Green and the proposed SPLOST projects seem to be within the law, and as such, I believe we should be able to vote for this E-SPLOST on May 24, 2016. Since Dr. Green has stated that he so strongly believes in the voters’ ability to decide on this SPLOST (as stated in his open response to Senator Fran Millar’s open letter), I believe the voice of the voters should also be heard when considering the school district’s participation in the Doraville TAD.

Additionally, an investment that contributes to the health and growth of a community can directly or indirectly affect the students and their families in a holistic manner. Students living in blighted communities perform worse in school, experience more health problems, and struggle with the effects of poverty in economic and social ways. Investing in this particular Buford Highway community could be one of the best ways the school system could support student success in a real way. As research repeatedly shows, helping communities out of poverty is one of the best ways to improve a student’s academic, social, and economic prospects.
