What's Going to Happen to Our Children and Education in California?

Our students need and deserve a good education. They can't get that education if California take teachers out of the class rooms.




Hundredths of teachers in Southern California have gotten their pink slips and don’t know if they will have a job after school ends in June 2009.  Summer school have already been cancelled in some areas.  Why is it, when there is a budget cut the schools are the first to get hit, and boy are the getting hit hard.


Los Angeles Unified School District board voted to lay off 5,400 teachers and supports, counselors and advisors may receive layoff notices.  LAUSD, the nation’s second largest school system faces a $596 million budget shortage for 2009-2010 school year.  If Wall street can be bailed out why can’t our public schools be bailed out? Wasn’t there supposed to be stimulus money to protect jobs?  Where is it?  Does any of the Lottery money go towards education?  If so, how is it used?


California wants stable children yet California is draining the schools of stability. We need stability in our schools. We need stability for our students.  We desperately need all the teachers we can get to teach our students.  Wake up people, these children are our future. California is willing to spend more money per child for lock up than California is willing to spend per child for a good education.  What is wrong with that picture?


If your lights are shut off, what good are your light bulbs?  So, what good are our schools if our teachers are taken away?  In my opinion, taking away the teachers from the public schools compares to putting a plant and spoon in front of a child with no food on that plate.  My big question is: What is going to happen to our students and to educations?   When is LAUSD going to stand up and fight for our students?  When are you going to stand up with all the teachers in pink and say our students deserve a good education, our students deserve teachers? Does anybody care?


Gov. Schwarzenegger what happened to the stimulus funds to help save the teachers and other jobs?  I believe it’s a grave injustice to deprive our students of a good education.  Our students cannot receive a good education in an over crowded class room with over worked teachers.  We need teachers in those class rooms.


What is going to happen to our children and education in California?  The children are our future, they are the future leaders of our country.  This is where our doctors, lawyers, teachers, judges, and even our future presidents will come from.  Our students deserve a good education. 


In my opinion, there is already a shortage of teachers. And when hundredths of the teachers that we do have get laid off, are the few teachers that’s left expected to have a class of 25% or 30%  more students in one classroom.  Our students need a good education, they deserve a good education, it is our responsibility to see to it that these students have the opportunity to get that education. 


I say to LAUSD and to our leaders, don’t deprive our students of a good education. Don’t take the teachers out of the class rooms.  Our students deserve a good education.

Every dollar spent in education brings a return to the state much more than that dollar over the life of the child. without education doors don't open and the state losses its skilled labor and professionals and slowly slips into a welfare state and very poor. Excellent article. Liz

I just got words from a teacher that works in Pomona, CA and got her pink slip a few weeks ago; today, she received a second notice. THE MONEY CAME IN; NO ONE WILL BE GETTING LAID OFF; at least in her district. However she believes this means all California teachers.
