I congratulate Emmett Carson of the Silicon Valley Community Foundation for having the courage to suggest at this year's State of The Valley Conference that it is time to discuss reforming Proposition 13.
A large majority of the approximate 1,000 people attending agreed in an informal poll. Silicon Valley's and California's children deserve better education funding than our current 49th in the U.S. It's high time for us to compel our elected officials to exhibit leadership and spearhead meaningful reform of Proposition 13.
