I just don't get it


OK I hate to make this a negative post, but I just couldn't stop thinking about this without getting really mad. I was at school today and my son's teacher, who is a really great teacher, (this is her first year) I asked her if she was excited about the summer and she explained she is moving to a city about an hour away. I asked why and she said the school did not renew her contract because the funding has been cut, so they are just going to increase class sizes. Her job was not the only one cut.
What makes me mad is whether you are a democrat or republican, we are spending so much money on things that really are not important or shouldn't be spent in the first place. When are we going to support teachers and our schools and make our children's education the most important thing.

Our government definately has their priorities mixed up.
This is the first time I have visited your blog Jodi. I love your embossed background.
