In this life, the road we travel should be Beautiful!
In this time of recession, depression, and lack of funding, are we telling our children that they are no good? Never-ending budget cuts in education would seem to say so. In times when things are so hard for so many people, budget cuts to education only make matters worse. Putting more financial responsibility on the families who can not afford it doesn’t make sense. I’m not speaking for everyone but I could do without flowers and plants in our parks and roadways, this country would still be beautiful. Perhaps we could stop doing ridiculous studies that do not help the general population, I don’t need a study to know that traffic jams are actually caused by traffic or that wearing clothes will keep you warm. Stop wasting time and money fighting against marijuana, just increase the tax revenues by legalizing it! Regardless of controversy, save time and money, just legalize same-sex marriage, those who oppose it can still sit in judgement.
Education is the future of this and every other country. Why would anyone want to remain a teacher with this kind of attack on their profession, oh yea, I know why – because there aren’t any other jobs available! The best education and the availability of the arts in school are children’s basic human rights. If we paid teachers as if they were baby-sitters, they would make more money than they do teaching. Why would any teacher or prospective future candidates want to stay/go into this profession…why not study that!
In the words of today’s song, we are basically telling the future of our country “You’re No Good” and that is just plain wrong! Our future depends on them…
The rant is over, have a ROCKIN’ day, Mama
