PUSD budget cuts again?
Original post made by Stephen, Golden Eagle, on Nov 17, 2008
We all realize that the budget crisis at the state level will impact our schools. We watched the PUSD board meeting tonight and massive cuts will hit the district. Massive layoffs and getting rid of class reduction programs could happen, does this mean bigger classes in kindergarten, first grade? Board members please look at cuts not directly at the schools. Look at the district level, do you as board members need to go to expensive conferences or workshops? Do district administrators need to go to expensive conferences? Yes we all need to learn and gain knowledge, but not at the expense of our children. A teacher told me that almost all district office administrators and board members go to a week conference in San Diego; do they need to go this year? Maybe everyone needs to have cuts? Maybe everyone needs to stay at home to help the budget.
