It's what everyone else is doing
This week came news that our DEMOCRAT governor was proposing deep cuts to education despite the voter's having approved some time ago a 2% increase to education. It seems the prevailing logic continues to be tighten those belts mister! But it's no big surprise to those that know that the real plan is to under fund public education and finally channel the money to private sources (private schools and charters schools) where they can underpay teachers and break unions. What is most galling is the drumbeat of the press who supports the right wing agenda to cut, cut, cut! Below is a letter I received from my son's school district and below that an except from the Denver Post.
