I never like to see educational budgett cuts but something has to
give and if only three more kids are placed in classroom that is not
bad. Cynthia M.
If the choice is add three children or shut down the system because
you are out of money, the answer is very simple. An additional
three children is not going to harm the existing children in each class.
Cutting school teachers jobs is a step backwards .Why dont they put
four or five students into a class and save even more money.This is not
the answer as it does not encourage teacher students to come into
teacher training therefore damaging future developments.We even in
England are suffering Death By A Thousand Cuts. Ron Blades
add a 1% tax to all the casinos.to keep the schools teacher working.
keep the classroom small. dan richardson fairfield,ca
Cutting the budget is very important, but there has to be more wasted
spending in other areas than cutting education. Wilma
Looking at the quality of young people and their lack of manners and
overall education I dont think we can risk cutting any money to teach
them. Dennis Warner
I understand money is tight, but if officials would stop tagging on
useless personal projects for themselves and the people that got them
elected, the budget would have plenty of money for all education and
maybe some left over. Carl Hudson IL
This is how our country got into the condition it is in, bad roads,
terrible bridges falling down, and seeing our youth rate lower and lower
in the world... cutting back on necessities is not a wise choice.
Correct spending without all the waste is the right answer but I dont
expect a politician to do the right thing. That is why there
is lobbyists, otherwise they would be called people bribing officials
and be arrested. Somehow our country has been ruled by the greeed
of politicians and now the masses will pay for that greed. Warren
