Letter: Schools need money

ADN came out with a story on “City schools cut 100 jobs in effort to meet budget.” The school district is trying to cut $25 million in spending. This will lower the quality of education, which is not the direction we need to go.

The state wants to give billions of dollars for free with no strings attached to the oil companies in the hopes that some of that money will be spent here in Alaska to boost oil production. Can’t the state give $25 million to the school district in order to help them out in their time of need? It would only be a drop in the bucket compared to the billions of dollars the state wants to give the oil companies.
