  • I live in Wisconsin. We are considering home school for our children. We are going to attempt public school- but we intend to give our children the best education possible.

  • Not that bad yet, but budget cuts galore. It's happening all over the country because of strapped state budgets. States were stupid and went into debt when revenues went down. They should have been making an emergency fund when times were good like all of the financial advisors tell individuals to do. Now the Feds are starting to see their stupidity, too.

  • my district tried to close the only middle school we have and wanted the 7th and 8th graders to integrate into the high school. I'm sorry but that is unacceptable to me. I would not have a 12 year old daughter in school with 18yr old boys nope no thanks. The fact that we are willing to accept that as an option is disgusting to me,

  • A couple of years ago, they cut the public school teacher back. From third grade on, they are only allowed one teacher per classroom, no teaching assistants allowed. Only K - 2nd grade is allowed two teacher. The only exception is the special ed classes. They have also talked about starting high schools at nine instead of starting at there current time. These kids are our future and they want to cut back in the education department? What do you think the world will be like in twenty years?

  • The cutbacks in education are mortgaging the country's future . Education is an investment but I guess Americans don't want that kind of investment any more if they are unwilling to pay for it .

  • If they would do a five year phase-out of the DoE, and let the states be responsible for piblic schools. Much better decisions would be made.

  • Nope. They are building two more school in our town. A high school and an elementary school. Our schools don't have more than 22 children and the SE system is great.
