Is your state cutting Public School Funding?

Our state is... makes me mad, I think the financial cuts should come from somewhere else.

  • Yes. They are cutting out the stuff that doesn't matter and it is about time. The schools are running more efficiently and with less bureaucracy. They are spending less per student the past 5 years but getting a better result. Money isn't the schools problems government bureaucracy and unions are.

  • our state is reducing funding and INCREASING class size to 30 students per classroom. WAY TOO MANY.I work for a school district and that is TOO many kids in one class. They don't get the attention they deserve if they need help with anything.

    May I just say:

    I try so hard to make parents understand that being at school is only 1/2 the equation. The other 1/2 happens at home with an importance put on education and an expectation that school will be taken seriously. It starts at birth.

  • @ matthewscandi ... sounds good in theory, but it doesn't happen with families who don't speak English as their first language.

  • PLUS, having 30 kids in one classroom can get really really busy and classrooms weren't built to house 30 students and 30 desks, so it is very very crowded and that can create some tension amongst the kids
