"old as dirt"...I don't believe we are balancing the budget on the backs of kids...I didn't have any of the stuff kids today have...we didn't even have air conditioned class rooms and we always had about 30 or 32 kids in class rooms and I feel like I got a better education than kids do today...so don't give me that old crock of horse manure about the 'poor kids' having to suffer cause of balancing the budget...that's just another excuse for kids not doing well in school...what is more important to education is the quality of teachers, parents participation in their kids education, and discipline in the classroom. Kids today don't need computers in all phases of their education...what's wrong with using library books for research like humankind has done for 3000 or 4000 years? Sorry, I don't value your opinion on this! I work everyday allday with computers and they are a fantastic tool and every kid should have a good dose of computer literacy, but computers should not take the place of everything in education. Do kids even learn how to do math the old fashion way anymore or do they use calculators for most computations? The same with research...kids need to learn the basics of research and how to do it the old fashion way by researching books, magazine, and articles that are on file in libraries. And, when that is learned, it is ok to introduce computers into the research process.

Sorry, but I do not believe we are shortchanging education with the amount of funds being used, I believe education is being shortchanged by other deficiencies.
