"Old as Dirt"...college are not, you are also as "dumb as dirt"...you read my comment and did not understand anything I said. And, do you think the cuts will be permanent? Of course not, silly willy! Drastic measures have to be taken to help cure drastic situations. And, since education probably accounts for close to 50% of the total budget, why should education be exempt. And, throwing money at a problem hardly ever solves it. For instance, the district where I lived opened a new $85,000,000 high school this last fall...they could have postponed that operation for 3 or 4 years until the economy, hopefully, rights itself. Bottom line, you don't spend money if you don't have it. And, if education has to cut back on a lot of things, so be it. If we can cut 100,000 teachers from the budget, there's a good possibility that they weren't needed in the first place. Sorry that anyone has to have their budget cut, but during dire times, dire things have to be done. And, if those kids have to go to school in cramped schools, learn in classrooms with 30 to 40 pupils, double up on computers, etc etc etc, then tough luck, that's life. And, 'being old as dirt' you should know that....no one is going to be permanently hurt....if parents have concerns for their kids education, then they spend an extra hour every day helping them with assignments instead of *itching that the system has had to cut budgets and teachers, etc.

I'm really, really fed up with defeatist attitudes like yours...If you had been running WWII we would have surrended within a week to the Germans, Japanese, and Italians. I think I'm going to go mad with all the idiocy out there!
