DISD Students to Receive School Supplies From Mark Cuban—If Trustees Don’t Stop Him

School starts Monday. Good luck, kids.

The Dallas Mavericks just sent out a news release. It reads, in part:

This upcoming school year, each student in the Dallas Independent School District (approx. 158,000) will receive school supplies including a notebook, pencil and a Mavs game voucher from the Dallas Mavericks and owner Mark Cuban.

On Monday, August 28th, the first day of school for Dallas ISD, the Mavs ManiAACs, Dancers, Champ and MavsMan will distribute over 6,000 school supplies to Skyline High School and Frank Guzick Elementary School in East Dallas to celebrate the beginning of the 2017-2018 school year.

This raises a question, though. Will DISD trustees Lew Blackburn, Joyce Foreman, and Bernadette Nutall allow this to happen? Their track record suggests they won’t.

    Our community is fortunate to have Mark Cuban and the many contributions that he makes to it.

    As for the comment on the Trustees, POW!

    D-Magazine….You’re ridiculous. Those 3 Trustees didn’t want to raise taxes on their constituents since they’re in a much lower income bracket. They wanted a compromise, but the others didn’t want to play that. Like big babies, they left the table with nothing. Now look…..City of Dallas just posted that they want to increase the tax rate on us. Wouldn’t that have been nice, two tax rate hikes. Yay!
