Civil Cafe: Should We Use Property Taxes To Fund Schools?

This October, Civil Beat is partnering with Hawaiian Airlines to host back-to-back panel discussions on two critical questions that will appear on the November ballot. On October 2, we’ll consider a constitutional amendment to fund public education.

The event will be moderated by Civil Beat’s politics and opinion editor, Chad Blair.
