Question:

During this time of tightening budgets many school systems nationwide, including the fifth largest school district, Clark County School District (where Las Vegas is located) is impacted by budget reductions. To save money, Clark County School District is expected to increase the number of children per class by 3 students, thus eliminating 1,000 teacher jobs. Whether you have school age children or not, do you think this is a wise and prudent proposal to help cut the budget by adding 3 more children per classroom?  What is your opinion? We want to hear from you! (See other readers opinions below.)

Reader Poll Replies:

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.  Dr. Phillips

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   Goole England

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    Philadelphia PA

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  NYC NY
