Chris Hernandez of KSHB NBC out of Kansas City, Missouri interviewed a woman who said, I have an 8-year-old and a 6-year-old that will be going to school with 12th graders- and I find that very inappropriate. I don't feel my children will be safe," said Deneicia Williams.
Again, I ask, where are our country's priorities? It is beyond disheartening. Why does it seem that education always must take the brunt of budget shortfall, resulting in school children taking the hit?
I saw a bumper sticker the other day that may just sum it up, "It'll be a great day when the schools have all the money they need, and the Air Force has to hold a bake sale to buy a bomber." Well said.
