Letter: Kavanaugh would hurt our public schools

Our senators should not support Brett Kavanaugh. He supports taking money and resources from public schools and giving it to private and religious institutions. Our public education system is already in desperate need of funding!

I am a public school teacher who already buys hundreds of dollars of supplies for my class out of my own pocket. I get a second job every summer to pay for these things. If Sens. Lisa Murkowski and Dan Sullivan support Kavanaugh, this shows they are against our children. If they are against our children, they are against our country's future, which is already looking dim and despondent.
