Prop. 13 hinders education but helps homeowners 

San Luis Obispo

Thank you for Frank DePasquale’s commentary, “Education: then and now,” (Aug. 12). Most people would agree California’s public schools have long been in decline.

Like many other activists, DePasquale advocates striking Proposition 13 from the law. I’ve seen how Proposition 13 has gutted school libraries and deeply regret it. Still, we should examine both sides of the issue.

Proposition 13 averted a great evil. It prevented thousands of Californians from being taxed out of their homes.
