Bemoan problem, but find a solution

  • Follow Letters

I don't agree with the proposed cuts in education funds, but in addition to complaining about the problem we should be finding out what we can do to help right now.

We should be helping our kids with their homework. Indeed, we should be making sure that they are doing their work at school as well as at home. We can't hold the school system completely responsible. We as parents and grandparents have a stake in this, too.

Mr. Goble. Every single

Mr. Goble. Every single private and public organization has fat that can be cut.

The public education cuts have gotten lots of publicity because they can come forward and use the threat of "lesser education" as the consequence. But everyone needs to know that cuts can be made in education without affecting classroom instruction and they do need to be made. When there is no money, there is no money.

I do agree with you about parental involvement. Too many parents are "absent" from children's education these days.
