Larry - here in Missouri we in our little rural school are so worried about
the budget
cuts in education that our school is closing on Tuesday and carpooling to the
Capitol to talk to legislators and hopefully reason with them to not make
these
extensive cuts. 30 million is at stake after many, many cuts already!!!
These cuts
will make Special Ed cut to the bare bones and be ineffective - then of
course art,
music and pe will be eventually cut out - again!!! Backwards we go down the
slippery slope of education at risk. Roberta
