    I am sorry to say Cali with our recent budget shortfall here in Az. I put in a thread on this , this morning, we may be facing the same thing here. Here that have been talkng about cutting back police and fire and laying off teachers, as well as cutting off some public transportation. We found out that Arizona is number two in the Nation recently in it's budget crisis. Great news isn't it.

    Dallas is not "Texas," and cutbacks in teachers does not mean "education is on the line."

    Let's keep the sensationalism to a mild roar, huh?

    They've closed some schools here in San Antonio, and opened some new ones. When you think about it, the schools being closed in old neighborhoods and opened in new neighborhoods kind of goes along with the ages of the people living in those neighborhoods.

    But public school budgets are a state level concern, hence texas. And I never said on the line, I said on the chopping block which means it is what the legislature is cutting to get the budget in order.

    Our schools are losing PE and a few other 'unimportant' programs this year, because of the Cal budget crisis. It's supposed to get worse. I didn't realize texas had the same problems. I would be pretty pissed if my kids teacher was sacked in the middle of class.

    We don't need educated children.

    We need to borrow $700 billion dollars from China to occupy Iraq and fight the "war on terror."

    That money wouldn't have made kids more intelligent anyway. It would have been wasted one way or another.

    It would not have been wasted because it would not have been borrowed.

    George Bush has almost destroyed America.

    It is time for him and his war loving cronies to leave.
