Education vs. Budget Cuts

When I think of education, I think of how great it is and how far it can take us. Education is just as important as history. You know how they say if you don’t know your history you don’t know where you come from? Well, same goes for education, if you don’t have education you can’t go very far in life.

With this being said, it’s not only a state problem; it’s a national problem also.

In conclusion, education is major part of life and I don’t feel that it should be cut. If there is enough money in the rainy day fun to give towards education so that students could get the proper education that they deserve and teachers can keep their jobs then it should be given. I don’t think it’s fair the school funding is being reduced by 9.3 billion dollars and it’s only towards public education. Although private education is an alternate decision, everyone can’t afford it.
