Yes, everyone is in financial stress right now, but really what is in the best interest of kids is not cutting the budget by almost a billion dollars. Our district is taking measures to address the cuts, bit it is going to be painful. I realized the first of many hits when I realized that I can’t order the live animals that I need to finish my science unit. This is a problem since I need to complete my science entry for my National Boards and time is running out. I hate to think how it’s going to be when the subs really stop. We had a trial run today, but on a regular basis, this is going to get old really fast.
