Continued: Tevlin: Southwest alum’s gifts prompt debate over inequity

Feldman said the issue has been raised because parents and teachers at other schools see Southwest as a “rich” school, a perception Feldman believes is inaccurate. “A lot of families are just making ends meet,” he said.

Feldman said it’s only natural for him to favor his alma mater, but the issue of inequity has caused him to consider visiting other schools. It also prompted him to make a challenge to the city and other successful public school graduates.

“Where are all the other alums? There have to be a lot of people like me out there,” Feldman said. “I think the city and school board should be building bridges to alumni. If other schools have needs, and I have the means, they should be talking to me about it. They’ve got a live one here.”
