completely understandable your feelings and thoughts. i
sympathize with you! it really is incredulous. i really wish
the politicians who puppeteer us educators would read these
posts and CARE! what is it going to take for education to be
valued? it makes no sense at all.
i agree with the union poster...we must vote in the right
people who have a proven background of using monies for
educatoin, for making education a priority.
in my opinion, it should be a federal mandate that states
don't touch education funds for ANY reason other than to make
way for jobs for teachers and resources for students!
