I have heard about the economy crisis a million times and about the budget cuts but I never thought it would directly affect me or even my school, but it has. I learned that a lot of my favorite teachers will be receiving pink slips so that they can't return next year to teach.
Though I won't be going to the school next year, I really want students to have the great experience I had with these teachers. I'm also in the band program at our school, I play the alto saxophone, and it's a really great program. Sadly I have also heard that it might be dropped next year for students along with the teacher who I think is very good at his job. All my favorite teachers are getting dropped because most of them are young and haven't been teaching in the district for long. I feel very strongly about this and I want to be able to do something to help. When I talked to my parents about it they had said that a new tax has been presented to us.
This tax will help bring a lot of the teachers that I love and care about back to our teaching districts. I really want to be able to do something but I am too young to vote. So now I'm asking all of the adults out there who can, who can speak for all the kids who can't, that you vote yes so that your kids, grandkids, and great grandkids can keep the teachers that have helped them through their learning experiences.
