Letter: Budget cuts hurt teachers, pupils

January 16, 2014 

While this nation is recovering from the recession, the state government just cuts education. Education is one the most important things in a society, and they just cut it. 

With the new budget cut ASD is now going to be a seven-period day in all high schools with 200 teachers cut so the teachers still teaching will have to work harder. This also means that the district has to readjust the school schedule trying to fit all classes in the day. I don’t mind the extra class, it is the constant budget cuts to education; eventually there will be so many that students will leave high school not ready for the real world.
