Kansas City School Closures
I heard this morning that Kansas City is closing HALF of it's schools! You can read the story by clicking here. While I understand the problem with budget cuts, I don't understand why it always has to be education that is cut! How about cutting some of the expenditures for gardening of the Governor's mansion. Or how about cutting his pay, as well as that of the other bazillion people who work at the state capitol? You never hear about them cutting their salaries, you only hear about the salaries of teachers being cut. Is this how much our country values education?
